Neymar Recalls Romario Goal from 1994 World Cup

Brazilian forward Neymar recalls his first memory of the World Cup- when he was just two years old. The Seleção won the tournament in the USA in 1994 and the PSG man recalls Romário’s famous goal in the quarter-final against Netherlands.

Speaking to FIFA.com, Neymar recalled, “My first memory is from 1994. Although I was two years old, I think my first memory was watching on TV and the goal Romario scored against Holland. I remember that Bebeto crosses, and he takes it first time, and it’s a 'golazo’.”

Meanwhile, his international teammate Gabriel Jesus was in similarly nostalgic mood, “For the past three World Cups I have painted the streets (of hometown favela, Jardim Peri) to celebrate the competition – it’s almost an obligation for the community.

“Hopefully I will get the chance to play at the World Cup in Russia to repay all the joy it has brought me.”
