Are you watching LvG? Out-of-sorts Falcao scores twice on international duty with Colombia

It was against Bahrain, admittedly.

Back on the scoresheet: Falcao.
Back on the scoresheet: Falcao.

RADAMEL FALCAO GAVE a timely reminder to Louis van Gaal as he bagged a brace in Colombia’s 6-0 demolition of Bahrain.

The striker has struggled to impress his Manchester United manager in recent weeks amid concerns over his fitness, but he showed no signs of rustiness with an impressive display in Riffa.

Having previously not found the back of the net since late January, Falcao was among the goals before the break with two composed finishes – albeit against slack defending – while he also created the opener for Carlos Bacca.

Substitute Adrian Ramos added a fourth for Colombia after 59 minutes, while Johan Mojica and Andres Renteria completed the rout in the closing minutes after Falcao had been replaced.

Falcao’s night had been productive enough as Colombia began their Copa America preparations in perfect style.
