Julio César Romero Insfrán, nicknamed Romerito, is a former football midfielder from Paraguay, considered among the best players in Paraguayan football history. He is the only Paraguayan named by Pelé as one of the FIFA 100 in March 2004. Skillful midfielder gifted with a great hitting from set pieces and great vision of the game. Despite his apparent physical weakness, Romerito was a footballer with race, something he showed in every game. Highly efficient and creative, he became known for his speed, liveliness, resistance and incredible efficiency (around ten goals per season). Julio César became the idol of the "torcedores" of Fluminense. He is no longer Romero, but Romerito. His game won over the Brazilians. They recognize two essential qualities in him: the first is his technique, the second is his winning spirit. If in selection, Romero evolves most often at the center-forward position, in Fluminense, it multiplies in all parts of the land. Able to organize in the middle, to break through in attack, but also to come and defend close to his own surface, tackling and running like the most catchy of defenders. Best player in the Brazilian championship in 1984 and 1985, he was voted South American footballer of the year in 1985. Player with amazing dribbling abilities and great technique, very inventive player with great vision. He was a bit physically weak but still very efficient player, scoring more than 400 goals in carrer. He played deeper in midfield or offensive as a support striker or even side midfielder on the right side which sometimes transformed in a winger role.
Romero started his career at local club Sportivo Luqueño in 1977, by 1979 Romerito's consistent performances had earned him a place in the Paraguay national football team that played in the FIFA World Youth Championship and was considered one of the best players of the tournament along with Diego Maradona. In the same year, Romerito played the Copa América which was eventually won by Paraguay. In 1980 he joined now defunct New York Cosmos where he played alongside such greats as Carlos Alberto and Franz Beckenbauer. Romero moved to Brazil to play for Fluminense where he was selected as the South American Footballer of the Year in 1985. He became a fan favorite after leading the team to a Campeonato Brasileiro. In 1985 he was a key player in helping the Paraguayan national team return to the FIFA World Cup finals after a 28-year hiatus. After a short spell with FC Barcelona in Spain and a stint in Mexico with Puebla F.C. Romero returned to South America where he played out his career with Olimpia, Club Cerro Corá and Sportivo Luqueño in Paraguay and La Serena in Chile. During his career, he scored more than 400 goals, also netting 2 great goals on WC 1986 in Mexico. He is the only Paraguayan named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.
