On his day, Radamel Falcao was one of the best strikers in Europe. Indeed, some would claim he was the best full stop.

However, at 33-years-old and with several injuries on the clock, his best days are far behind him. That was certainly on show against Chile.

The Monaco forward did little to both Chile’s back line, with his weak link up play contributing to a disappointing evening overall.

Colombia now have the formidable Duvan Zapata to call upon, and Falcao’s display here showed a changing of the guard should be on the horizon.
