Falcao injures knee, could spell doom for Monaco and Colombia hopes

January 22nd, 2014

Radamel Falcao was stretchered off with a nasty knee injury during Monaco’s Coupe de France clash on Wednesday, spelling potential doom to both Monaco’s Ligue 1 and Colombia’s World Cup hopes. Falcao picked up the injury shortly after scoring the opening goal against Monts Or Azergues.

Whether Falcao will miss the rest of the season and the summer spectacle remains to be seen, but initial reports are not encouraging. Monaco released a short statement in regards to Falcao, saying the striker was hit in the left knee and that the club “must await further tests in the coming days to clarify the exact nature of the injury.”

Perhaps a better question is why Falcao was starting against a fourth-tier outfit, which was easily beaten 3-0, in the first place. It may just cost Monaco their run at a first Ligue 1 title since 2000, and Colombia — a dark horse candidate for the World Cup — their best player in Brazil.
