He was a bit unlucky because they did much better in next World Cup and Suarez and Forlan got all the attention. If he could have played with them and also Cavani, that would have been a strong team.
So true. He is way more talented than these guys (Forlan, Suarez etc) really. He would have certainly been the best player in the team if he was playing with them and showing his best. Uruguay probably will never see a player as gifted as him. They have much better team at the moment but they don't have anyone who can show Recoba-like brilliance.
