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


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.
