Alvaro Recoba
Club:Internazionale
Position:Forward

It seems that Alvaro Recoba could not have chosen a better moment to rediscover the spectacular form which first made him a firm favourite at the San Siro.

With the World Cup fast approaching, Recoba has been a revelation over recent weeks for an Inter side desperately chasing the Italian title.

Excellent individual displays have been marked by some stunning goals similar to those with which he first announced his arrival in Milan.

On his debut for Inter in 1997 he scored twice - one of those efforts a spectacular long-range pile-driver from around 35 yards.

Uruguay benefit from his ability at set-pieces - he has a deadly left foot.

He can play as an out-and-out striker or, as is more usual, in a deeper role where his vision and distribution can bring others into play.
