9️⃣0️⃣s football: Recoba & Ronaldo linkup for a sumptuous Inter Milan goal in 1999

Inter Milan has a rich history of blooding South American talents and in the late 90s, two of the biggest superstars from that continent donned the famous black and blue jersey of the Nerazzurri.

Uruguayan left-footed playmaker Álvaro Recoba and Brazilian great Ronaldo both made their debuts for Inter on 31 August 1997 and they would go on to enjoy a fruitful partnership at the San Siro. 

Here's a wonderful goal flamboyantly scored by Recoba and made by Ronaldo in a 6-0 win over Lecce in 1999. 

For what it's worth, here's the Inter starting XI that day, with Recoba scoring his goal off the bench.
