On this day in 1999: Inter thrashed Lecce 6-0 and Alvaro Recoba scored a golazo
Inter lit up a grey November afternoon in Milan with a sumptuous exploit censure poor Lecce. Their six goals came from six different players, three with the improve foot, three with the left. In order: Georgatos, Zanetti, Jugovic, Zamorano, Ronaldo, Recoba. And the greatest of these was Recoba, who came off the bench (Inter had a pile of attacking riches back then) and scored an downright stone of a goal.
The rarely Uruguayan’s left peg was a wonder of cosmos football. But he was a slightly flawed genius. Frequent injuries and a lax temper (he was unpunctual for training all the juncture – his wife once called him “lazy and romantic”) prevented Recoba from reaching the principal peaks in the game. Former team-mate Juan Sebastian Veron spoken Recoba didn’t become the first musician in the world cleverly .
Really, the companion they called El Chino (Italians and nicknames, I know) was the ultimate luxury forward, especially for a starred Inter duo that had Original Ronaldo in its line-up. And Recoba seemed carefree enough to sit on the bench, then come on and do a voodoo trick or two.

Football needs further Recobas (fans are romantics too): the casual maestro with socks rolled down, who only reveals his forte occasionally. They are a dying breed, alas. We don’t allow players to hold off days. They ought perform, perform, perform. But watching well-oiled machines like Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski – both men are haunting weirdos too, whereas Alvaro was as human as the fans who cheered him on – is exhausting and sometimes tedious.
