Diary

Tuesday, 9 May 2000 - Coach Wanderley Luxemburgo has reacted to a poor reception to his side's 2002 World Cup qualifiers by recalling the veteran striker Romario for the trip to the UK later this month.  The controversial 34 year old was recalled after his scoring streak for Vasco da Gama has seen him hit sixteen goals so far this season.  Romario played his last match for the national side in April 1998 and was injured before the World Cup in France. He was linked with the dismissal of coach Luxemburgo from Rio club Flamengo in 1995 when the striker was in disciplinary trouble but the club's board backed their star against the coach forcing Luxemburgo to quit.  He is a former World Player of the Year - a title he won in 1994 when he helped Brazil to win the World Cup and was outstanding for his club side FC Barcelona.  The Brazil squad will play in the UK later this month. They face Wales in Cardiff on May 23rd and England at Wembley on May 27th. The South Americans then play two World Cup matches - Peru in Lima on June 4th and Uruguay in Rio on June 28th.

Friday, May 19, 2000 - Brazil look to be travelling to the UK without star striker Romario.  The veteran World Cup winner whose form for Vasco da Gama this season has helped the club establish themselves as championship favourites was injured against Bangu on Wednesday. Romario has hurt his left ankle and may be rested rather than brought over to Europe.  Coach Wanderley Luxemburgo has called up Marcos Assuncao to replace Flavio Conceicao for the two friendlies.
