Veteran striker Romario scored the 1,000th goal of his career Sunday, converting a 48th-minute penalty in Vasco da Gama's 3-1 victory over Sport of Recife in the second round of the Brazilian national championship. The 41-year-old Romario delighted a cheering crowd that packed Rio's Sao Januario stadium to see the 23-year veteran. After the goal, the game was suspended - with Vasco leading 3-0 - as his mother, father wife, children and a horde of journalists rushed onto the field. Romario then ran around the pitch, waving to the cheering crowd.
