Radamel Falcao Suffers Serious Knee Injury In French Cup, May Miss World Cup (With GIF)

By Chris Wright

France Soccer Monaco Falcao

While he’s still awaiting an expert opinion, it looks very much like Radamel Falcao’s season could be over after the Monaco striker suffered a fairly grim-looking knee ligament damage in the Coupe de France last night.

Having already scored in the 29th minute, Falcao was stretchered off shortly before the break when a last-ditch challenge from Chasselay Monts d’or Azergues defender Soner Ertek saw the Colombian’s left knee buckle inwards awkwardly…


Not pretty.

As mentioned, the full extent of the injury is as yet unspecified, but it looks very much as though Falcao won’t be playing again this season and may also miss the World Cup in the summer – with several sources stating that his recovery stint is likely to be a six-to-eight-monther.

It’s also being speculated that Falcao’s extended lay-off may put the kibosh on Everton’s partially-completed loan move for 6’8” Monaco forward Lacina Traore.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! A world cup without Falcao would be 10% less interesting. Even though Colombia still has some quality strikers (Jackson, Muriel, Ramos etc.).

    Also loved that the refree thought this wasn’t a foul.

    Bum indeed.

    Was looking forward to seeing him at the World Cup.

    Makes you think, what if Ronaldo & Messi suffer similar injuries?

    That would be seriously bad news for FIFA, given the draw those two will generate.
