What Radamel Falcao had Done
Radamel Falcao is currently deemed as one of the most prolific strikers in world football. Currently playing for Monaco in the French Ligue 1, his goal scoring records for previous clubs Porto and Atletico Madrid are nothing short of phenomenal. 51 appearances and 41 goals at Porto, alongside 67 appearances and 52 goals at Atletico is simply world class. The Colombian striker will hope to impress at the World Cup in Brazil, who’s best odds to win the golden ball come from Bet365 at 25/1, but go as low as 18/1 elsewhere. There is no doubt that most of Colombia’s success in the tournament depends on how well Falcao plays, but with a high goal scoring pedigree he is always a huge threat to any team he plays.
As to be expected, Falcao will be deemed as Colombia’s most likely top scorer in the competition if he were to play. There is a good chance that Falcao may not even make to the World Cup with Colombia after suffering cruciate ligament damage playing in the French Cup, which more often than not see a recovery time of several months. Because this might be the case, betting of him being player of the tournament or Colombia’s top scorer has been suspended. There is a still a chance he will be fit for the tournament however, but it is unlikely he can play to the best of his ability after a long spell out through serious injury. He was hugely influential in Colombia’s qualifying campaign scoring 9 goals in total, so he is always likely to keep up his scoring streak in the actual tournament. Colombia will pray that he will be fit again, as without him how far they can progress looks to be a much smaller distance. Winning the golden ball after a serious injury will be a huge ask, but if he makes it in time for the tournament he will likely be Colombia’s top scorer.
