    ... de todos os tempos?

    Quem sabe, se tivessemos visto eles juntos numa Copa, não dúvido que seriam lembrados assim.

    O comercial "alma gêmea" da Nike é sempre legal:

    Mas que tal esse vídeo de 15 minutos recordando a parceria:

    Todos, com certeza, reconhecem a música clássica que toca durante o vídeo. O curioso é que o título da peça poderia ser o nome da dupla também: "Ode to Joy" (Ode à Alegria) :D

    Enjoy this one Ombak. Not the best quality but touching to say the least. It's an excerpt from TWO BILLION HEARTS (Todos os Coracoes do Mundo), a documentary about the 1994 Fifa World Cup. Too bad this video doesn't show the very end of the footage... it's Romario and the rest of the team atop a firetruck in Rio at night, with many fans shouting and cheering (and with a Vasco flag being waved). The documentary ends with a suit & tie-wearing Romario with the Cup on one hand as he acknowledges the crowd.

    I am nearly in tears. Such awesome memories... imagine what might've been in 1998 if Romario had never gotten injured.

    Looks like Ronaldo assisted Romario a WHOLE lot more than the other way around :D

    I always found Ronaldo's passing ability/vision very underrated.

    Definitely. THat's one reason why, fat as he was, I preferred him over the struggling Adriano.

    That pass to Romário in the Mexico game is amazing isn't it? Zico-like even. BTW, I was at that game too. I lived in So. Fla. at the time and I also got to see the Olympic games (first round and qualifiers) during that time.
