Rafael Enrique Romo Pérez (born February 25, 1990) is a Venezuelan footballer who most recently played for Cypriot club APOEL, as a goalkeeper.


Romo started his career at 17 years old, playing in old Venezuelan goalkeeper Gilberto Angelucci's team, the Atlético de Turén. He participated in the 2007 Venezuelan Torneo Apertura. He played against U.A. Maracaibo in the Copa Venezuela, which surprised fans and the press. On 15 July 2009, Udinese acquired the goalkeeper from Llaneros de Guanare.[1]

Romo made his debut with Udinese in a 3–1 defeat against Lazio, on 15 May 2010.[2]

After three years on loan at Mineros, Romo signed for Watford in August 2015 on a short-term loan deal to cover the two game suspension for Giedrius Arlauskis.[3]
