Came just half a year before the World Cup in Brazil, where the South Americans hoping to reach the final stages of the competition, the news of unavailability of Monaco striker was hardly digested, including by the country’s president, Juan Manuel Santos, who visited him in France to the hospital where had been hospitalized.

Doctors gave Colombians reasons to hope that “El Tigre” could return to the pitch earlier than is expected, and that the striker will be part of the national squad that will participate in the tournament in Brazil. Proof of this is the decision taken by Colombia’s coach Jose Pekerman, which included Falcao on the list sent Wednesday to FIFA, with the expanded group of 30 players eligible for the World Cup.

Radamel Falcao was injured at the end of January in the first half of the match won by AS Monaco 3-0 in front of Chasselay, a fourth league team, in a match played in Coupe de France, in which the Colombian scored a goal.

“I have a little hope that I could participate,” said Radamel Falcao a few days ago on Twitter.

12 goals in 21 games played for AS Monaco scored the Columbian footballer in all competitions in the current season.
