Rio de Janeiro:

Veteran striker Romario, who scored a league-leading 22 goals in last year's Brazilian Championship, said on Wednesday he will stay with Vasco da Gama through the 2006 season. Romario, who led Brazil to the 1994 World Cup title in the United States, made the decision after meeting with Vasco president Eurico Miranda on Wednesday, the club said on its Web site. Some local media had been speculating the 39-year-old player could move to defending Brazilian league champion Corinthians to join Argentine international Carlos Tevez, while others suggested he would retire from professional soccer. The striker burst onto the national soccer scene with Vasco in 1985. He returned to the club in 2000, after having played abroad and for Vasco rival Flamengo. The former FC Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven player has said he intends to pursue a career in beach soccer after retiring. (AP)
