thumbnail Hello,

Colombian hit four goals in his side’s victory over Villarreal in the Europa League last night , equalling Jurgen Klinsmann’s record of 15 goals in the 1995-96 UEFA Cup season

Porto striker Falcao is delighted to have taken his goal-tally in the Europa League to 15 goals this season but has warned his side against complacency in their return leg against Villarreal

The 25-year-old scored four times in Porto’s 5-1 victory over their Spanish opponents in the first-leg of their semi-final tie on Thursday evening, equalling Jurgen Klinsmann’s record of 15 goals in the 1995-96 UEFA Cup season.

Falcao is proud to have achieved the feat and told "I'm aware I'm now level with Klinsmann and that makes me very proud. But I'm not done yet.

"I will never forget tonight [Thursday] – it's like a dream come true. It was the first 'poker' [the Iberian term for a four-goal haul] of my career. But above all, I'm satisfied I've helped my team achieve their objective. This was a team effort and every single player gave their all for the collective good."

However, the Colombian striker warns against any complacency against Villarreal in the second-leg and said: "The tie isn't over yet. Despite this big win, we have to remain focused and calm because there's a second game to come and it will be difficult for sure.

“Villarreal are very good at home – as they showed against Twente. We can't ease up. We have to get past Villarreal and only then can we think about the final."

The second-leg between Villarreal and Porto takes place in Spain next week.
