Romário: 20 minutes of goals

Experience the majesty of Romário with this 20-minute video of his greatest goals.

I wrote about Romário’s time at Barcelona in 1994 a while back. It was a remarkable season for the Brazilian striker which ended with a World Cup winners medal. The subsequent years weren’t as rosy but over his whole career, Romário scored some of the most sublime solo goals in history.

His fluid motion and clinical finishing makes him one of the greatest strikers of all time.

O Baixinho was an opportunist who always took advantage of every occasion he had. How? With his acceleration and change of rhythm between the lines, and his dribbling to leave defenders behind in short spaces. With exquisite ball control and the ability to link up with teammates, he was the king of feints, making unpredictable movements for any rival, and was very creative when setting up his own shot. He was like a box of surprises: you never knew what he was going to surprise you with, but you knew that was going to be magnificent.
