Yesterday, one of my favourite footballers scored his 1,000th career goal, although how many of those came in amateur and youth games is debatable.

Because Romario had been sitting on the milestone for a few weeks now, everyone was well prepared. TV crews invaded the pitch to interview Romario, and the match was not restarted for *16 minutes*. Watch the whole event after the jump, and if you still aren’t satisfied you can watch Pele, the only other footballer to reach this milestone, scoring his 1000th back in the times of black and white.

This record is invalid because one of the goals he had included was one where he was in the park and then some kids kicked the ball his way. Instinctively Romario thwacked the ball past some 11 year old, wearing glasses, between the posts (there was nothing he could have done).

So unfortunately it doesn’t count.
