SAR soccer chiefs are desperate to get their money back from Romario after he pulled out of today's Millennium Cup. Hong Kong Football Association officials were last night locked in talks with Romario's agent, hoping to recoup their cash after Romario failed to make the trip here because of injury. The HKFA have already paid two thirds of an instalment agreement to get the 33-year-old World Cup-winning forward here. But Romario, currently playing with Vasco Da Gama, pulled out of the match after hurting his leg in a domestic accident in Brazil. 'We're working with his agent in Hong Kong and we have to negotiate with him and have some kind of replacement contract ready before the match,' said Instant-Dict director Ken Ng, who is working on behalf of the HKFA. 'The contract is still being discussed. Whether or not we will take legal action depends on whether an amicable solution can be reached. 'We want our money returned somehow. We have already paid out more than 50 per cent of the instalment. We have to find a solution,' he said. The HKFA completed paying two installments just three days ago. The third installment was supposed to have been paid after the match - between the Hong Kong League XI and a Brazilian select - scheduled at the Hong Kong Stadium. Ng said today's match would still be worth going to as dragon and samba dancing has also been laid on as part of the entertainment. 'Most of the players coming here from Brazil are top ranked players within the Brazilian local league,' said Ng. A prize presentation to announce Hong Kong's Top 10 Footballers of the Century will also be made during the match. Among the list of candidates expected to be honoured are former Blackpool player Cheung Chi-doy; Wu Kwok-hung, a former midfielder for the now-defunct Seiko team, and one-time Asian legend Lee Wai-tong, Hong Kong's best player of the 1940s. Current Hong Kong stars Leslie Santos and Au Wai-lun were also included in a Top 30 list, although it remains to be seen whether either of the two will make the final elite list.
