Recoba seals it for Inter, against Milan!

An unlikely heroe of late sealed a 1-0 victory for Inter Milan against arch rivals AC Milan in the final of the TIM cup (A small preseason tournament). See the goal below, pure Recoba of old, so good to see again.

I’ve always admired Recoba, he’s been at Inter for such a long time, it’s always been said that he could(‘ve) been the worlds best. What happened to all that immense potential? I guess some of it was realised from time to time but he has always been plagued with injuries. It’s pretty tragic and I know what it’s like to have long term niggling injuries that don’t seem to go away.

It seems like he’ll move away from Inter finally which is probably a good choice for him as he’s now on the wrong side of 30 and probably doesn’t have much playing time left. He finds world-class competition for a starting spot with Ibrahimovic, Crespo, Adriano, Cruz and now Suazo.

Check out below why he was always highly rated and the moments that etched him into the hearts of many an Inter fan…

PS: The music is pretty dodgy but you forget about it pretty quick after seeing that lethal left foot!

2007 – Sept – 15; Update: Recoba is now on loan to Torino. Good luck El Chino! He has been at Inter since 1997, made 261 appearances and scored 72 goals.
