Recoba burst on the football scene as a 16-year-old in 1993 for
Montevideo side Danubio. Over the next four years he scored 52
goals in 58 games, moved to Uruguayan giant Nacional and then to
Inter for US$4.5 million.
In Italy, he made a perfect start.
Making his debut the same day
as Brazilian superstar Ronaldo, it was the little known Uruguayan
who stole the headlines, grabbing two goals in 20 minutes to help
Inter beat Brescia 2-1.
