Falcao To Miss FIFA World Cup

The Colombian national team has suffered a major injury blow and will have to replace Radamel Falcao at the World Cup in Brazil.

The Monaco striker suffered a ligament damage to his left knee in Monaco’s Coupe de France victory over Chasselay when he was hit on the knee by an opposition defender in the 29th minute, and immediately indicated he is in serious pain.

Colombia’s main striker was stretchered off the pitch and tests on Thursday morning confirmed the worst fears of ruptured ligaments in Falcao’s knee.

The initial timeline for Falcao’s recovery is six months which rules him out of the summer FIFA World Cup. The injury is a big blow for Colombia who many considered a potential dark horse for the tournament.

Falcao ended Colombia’s World Cup qualifiers as his countries top scorer with nine goals in 13 matches, and played a major role in his nation moving up to fourth place in the FIFA World Rankings.

After Theo Walcott and potentially Sami Khedira, Radamel Falcao is the third quality player who will miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
