this guy is a joke he just wants to be pele.

They say Romario counts goals scored as a teenager, as an amateur player and during scrimmages against small clubs - all of which normally wouldn't be considered in official statistics. Romario's detractors also say the landmark must be seen as dubious because Romario tried to count goals in matches that never happened, and some in games that ended 0-0. He later subtracted them from his countHe admits that 71 of his goals came before he became a professional player, and that 15 were scored even before he turned 16Nine goals allegedly scored while he played for PSV Eindhoven, for example, occurred in matches that are not in the club's records. Romario also said he scored twice against FC Barcelona in a friendly tournament in 1992. But the Dutch club and the Spanish club say they never played the match he cited. Romario counts others scored in friendly matches against teams without professional playersVasco joined in trying to help Romario achieve his goal by embarking on a project called "Romario 1,000," setting up several friendlies last year against second- and third-division clubs.
