Man. I was just talking to friends about how Falcao would play on one leg if he had to for his country at the world cup.
It turns out that won’t happen. According to Yahoo Sports, Falcao has graciously turned down a roster spot on Colombia.
How upsetting to hear and upsetting for him this whole situation must be. He is easily a top five player in the world and I think Colombia would have won their group had he been healthy. This may have been the best Colombian team in their country’s history.
If (and most likely when) they lose, people will speculate what would have happened had he been in there.
At 28 years old, who knows if we will see him in Russia for Colombia.
