After propelling Los Cafeteros to a record third place mark in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings and qualifying for 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ to end a 16-year long absence from the finals, the current crop of Colombian players have earned their status as their country's "Golden Generation." Among a wave of world-class players, though, Radamel Falcao is the jewel that glitters brightest.
After leaving River Plate and starring for Porto and Atletico Madrid, scoring more than 100 goals in his first three seasons in Europe, Falcao earned the nickname "El Tigre," praise from pundits who regard him as among the deadliest strikers in the sport and a vast fortune from his new club, AS Monaco.
A player blessed with blazing pace and ingenious creativity, he can strike from anywhere in the attacking third, hitting venomous, curling shots with either foot or rising to nod home adeptly despite his average height. Just ask Chelsea players against whom he scored a first half hat trick in the 2012 UEFA Super Cup.
As spectacularly as he's performed at club level, Falcao has been perhaps even better in the Tricolor of his country. He scored a stoppage-time winner in the first World Cup™ CONMEBOL qualifier for a place in Brazil and went on to lead the team in scoring for the campaign with nine goals from 16 matches. He capped off Colombia's historic run to Brazil by scoring twice from the penalty spot against Chile to inspire a comeback from 0-3 to seal a finals spot.
