2014 FIFA World Cup™

65 days to go

The 1990 FIFA World Cup™ was Romario’s first, but his involvement in Italy – due to injuries and suspension – amounted to just 65 goalless minutes.

Four years later, though, it was a very different story. Romario quickly emerged as the star of USA 1994, striking up a potent partnership with Bebeto and firing Brazil to the Trophy with five crucial goals.

That contribution resulted in him winning the adidas Golden Ball, becoming the first Brazilian since Pele in 1970 to be crowned as the World Cup’s outstanding player.
