Brazilian Tulio Maravilha nears 1,000 career goals

And you thought this year’s goalscoring feat was set by Leo Messi.

43-year-old Brazilian striker is something of a character, and for the last fifteen years has embarked on a one-man crusade to score 1,000 goals in his career.

In order to do so he has played for a disgusting amount of different teams and this week, signed by Botafogo as a gesture to try and get him to the achievement, he scored number 995.

However, like many before him, it is clear that Tulio has been a little ‘creative’ in his accounting, as a Brazilian football magazine has him on on less than 800 goals!
