Five months after tearing his left ACL in a French Cup match, Monaco forward Radamel Falcao is back in training.
However, his chances at fully recovering in time for the World Cup appear to be slim. In fact, French newspaper L’Equipe has already reported that the Colombian striker will miss this summer’s spectacle, despite Jose Pekerman including him in his provisional squad.
With a little under a month to go, we’re not ready to rule him out entirely just yet. But Falcao still has a tall mountain to climb.
