Romario sheds tears over World Cup dream

RIO DE JANEIRO, April 5 (AFP)- Brazilian striker Romario of the Vasco da Gama club shed some tears at a press conference over what he described as his big dream to play in this summer's World Cup finals.

The 36-year-old 1994 World Cup star, who has the backing of many fans and the media but is not highly impressing Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, told the press: "I am going to do everything I can, from the possible to the impossible, to earn the right to play in the finals."

Romario, who needed time to settle after shedding tears, added: "Who knows if my name will be in the squad list on May 6." May 6 is the date that Scolari will announce his final selection for the May 31 to June 30 showcase football event in Korea and Japan.

"My big dream is to play in the World Cup, it's what I would love to do because I just love playing," Romario continued. "The Brazilian public who have gone through so much recently, deserve to have a victory.

"If I'm not picked I will still be Brazil's biggest fans because we must have confidence in the team which is chosen."

On Tuesday, Scolari picks a squad for the friendly match against Portugal in Lisbon on April 17.

Romario added: "I will be continuing to work to be in perfect physical and technical condition."
