Still Got It! Alvaro Recoba (Nacional) scores directly from a corner v Argentinos Juniors

We’ve said it before and we’ll keep on saying it: 36-year-old Alvaro Recoba is a phenomenon.

El Chino has done it again!

For the third time in less than half a year the never-aging Uruguayan has managed to score a golazo straight from a corner.

Alvaro Recoba’s latest feat was recording in a local tournament against Argentinos Juniors on Sunday night. Recoba scored the second goal in a 3-1 win for Nacional, curling an inswinging corner high into the net.

Recoba appears to have perfected the art of going for goal when faced with an inswinging corner after the Uruguayan legend scored two almost identical golazos against Fenix and Liverpool in September and October 2012.

Enjoy Recoba’s latest Nacional golazo v Argentinos Juniors below.
