Roberto Dinamite Death: Brazilian footballer and politician Carlos Roberto de Oliveira, also known as Roberto Dinamite, lived from 13 April 1954 to 8 January 2023. He was born in Rio de Janeiro state’s Duque de Caxias. Roberto has been a centre forward for more than twenty years and is the Brazilian Série A’s all-time leading scorer as well as the Vasco da Gama player with the most appearances and goals. Roberto Dinamite competed for his country in both the 1972 Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cups in 1978 and 1982. From 2008 to 2014, he served as Vasco da Gama’s president.

Between September 1975 and June 1984, Roberto Dinamite played in 47 international matches for Brazil, starting 25 of them and scoring 25 goals. He played 38 matches against national teams, scoring 20 goals (20 of them in matches sanctioned by FIFA.) He also played nine matches against combined teams and clubs, scoring 5 goals. On September 30, 1975, the Peruvian national team defeated Brazil 3-1 in their inaugural match. On May 23, 1976, when Brazil defeated England 1-0, Roberto Dinamite scored the first goal for the Brazilian national team. [6] On June 17, 1984, when Brazil and Argentina tied 0-0, he received his final cap.

Dinamite scored three goals while playing as a reserve in the 1978 FIFA World Cup. In the 1982 FIFA World Cup, he served as Serginho’s backup player, and Telê Santana called him in when Careca got hurt. All five of Roberto Dinamite’s appearances for the Brazil Olympic team were in 1972. In his final game, which was played on August 11, 1972, Brazil and Tuna Luso tied 1-1.

In 2003, Roberto joins Vasco’s political scene and begins to challenge the contentious Eurico Miranda with a combative demeanour and contentious leadership. He emerges as the leading figure in the conflict between the veteran football managers and the newest top hats.

After a protracted court battle, the Dinamite political party was finally successful in having the 2006 elections—which Eurico won revoked in 2008. The fresh election is set for the same year, and Roberto triumphs amid high hopes. Vasco’s first relegation in the Brazilian league was painful because they inherited numerous financial issues from the previous administration. In 2009, it encourages management that seeks to strike a balance between financial stability and football competition, as well as restoring the club’s reputation. The team goes up without scares, champion of Series B.

With Roberto as president, Vasco won the 2011 Copa do Brasil, their first first division championship in eight years. It finished second in Brazil that year after a tough battle with Corinthians that lasted until the last round. The team had a significant role in the Brasilieiro and Libertadores the following year. However, Roberto’s tenure as manager would come to an end in 2013, with a financial problem and another relegation.

Battle With Bowl Cancer

For a number of years, the relationship with the supporters was somewhat strained—at least among younger generations who hadn’t seen Roberto play. In So Januário, Dinamite was once more revered as a de facto idol as the scars eventually began to heal.

A statue was built at So Januário in 2021, which confirmed Dinamite’s status as Vasco’s supreme idol and served as the career-ending definitive consecration.

In 2021, Roberto found the tumour and received chemotherapy. The crowd alternated throughout the year between supporting the team in its bid to return to Série A and the idol in his battle with cancer. Dinamite was admitted to the Unimed hospital in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday, July 7, due to the worsening of his health, and did not resist.
