In memory of Alvaro Recoba’s sensational debut at Inter Milan

Debuts always offer a sense of intrigue as fans get the first glimpse of a new addition and make an instant impact to instantly secure cult hero status.

As for dream debuts, it’s hard to beat Alvaro Recoba’s first game for Inter Milan, the unannounced commitment to come off the bench to snag the win from the Brescia defeat.

The pre-game hype surrounded Ronaldo Nazario’s debut after his world record arrival, but the youngster, signed by Uruguayan team Nacional that summer, dwarfed his illustrious teammate in stunning style.

Inter fell behind just moments after introducing Recoba to replace them for the second half before the debutant turned the tide with two late moments of magic to seal all three points.

His first shot from a distance shot into the top corner before deflecting an unstoppable free kick over the goalkeeper five minutes from time.

Recoba became a cult figure for his ability to conjure up incredible moments with a brilliant left foot, never more than on his dream debut for Inter.
