Colombia to wait on Falcao fitness

Colombia coach Jose Pekerman has revealed that he will wait ‘until the last minute’ before he decides whether to bring striker Radamel Falcao to the World Cup, BBC Sport has reported.

The front-man, who joined Monaco from Atletico Madrid last summer, has been injured since January, when he damaged his knee ligaments in a French Cup tie. He has since undergone surgery and admitted that even if he makes the World Cup, he would not be 100% fit.


And Pekerman explained that he will make his decision after Colombia’s warm-up matches. "I'll wait until the last day, until the last hour, the last minute," he said.


The fitness of Falcao is seen by many as what could decide Colombia’s fortunes in Brazil, although they do have sufficient cover in the shape of highly-rated FC Porto star Jackson Martinez and Sevilla top scorer Carlos Bacca.


The South Americans are seen as dark horses in their first World Cup appearance since 1998, having climbed up the rankings with an impressive qualifying campaign. One of the seeded teams in December’s draw, they were put into Group C alongside Greece, the Ivory Coast and Japan.
