Romario has made a surprising return from retirement at the age of 58 to join the Brazilian side America Football Club in Rio de Janeiro.

The iconic Brazilian footballer has announced his comeback after more than 15 years since he retired in 2009.

He's currently the president of the Rio de Janeiro-based club, which competes in the second tier of the Rio regional competition, the 1994 World Cup winner expressed his desire to play alongside his son, Romarinho, in a few matches, although he clarified that he won't be participating in the full league season.

In a post on his Instagram page on Tuesday, Romario said: “I’m not going to compete in the championship, but rather play a few games for the team of my heart and make another dream come true, playing alongside my son.

Romario's career began in 1985 with Vasco de Gama, followed by successful stints in Europe with PSV and Barcelona. 

For Brazil, he scored 55 goals in 70 caps and was crowned FIFA Player of the Year in 1994, a year in which he played a key role in Brazil's World Cup triumph, scoring five goals in the tournament.
