Our latest “Olimpico” goal video, this one from Alvaro Recoba

2 Comments

If only to prove that Thierry Henry isn’t the only man capable of hitting the occasional “Olimpico,” the goal scored directly off a corner kick, watch as Uruguayan veteran Alvaro Recoba scores one Sunday for his current club, Nacional.

(Henry scored on such a curling effort in September against Columbus.)

Actually, the longtime Uruguayan international and former Inter Milan striker has supplied two of these YouTube Olimpico goodies this year.

He also scored off a corner kick a month ago against Fenix.

Sunday’s came in a league contest against Liverpool.
