The Colombia international has been ruled out of action for approximately six months after suffering knee ligament damage in midweek

Emmanuel Riviere dedicated Monaco's 2-0 win over Olympique de Marseille on Sunday night to injured team-mate Radamel Falcao.

The Colombia international has been ruled out of action for the remainder of the season, and potentially the World Cup, after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage in his left knee in midweek.

Riviere and fellow forward Valere Germain ensured that Falcao's absence was not felt by firing Monaco to a win that moved Claudio Ranieri's men to within three points of Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain, but the 23-year-old explained afterwards that the team's thoughts remain very much with their stricken colleague.

"I'm happy for Valere Germain but it's a great collective victory," the in-form attacker told Canal Plus. "We managed to stay together.  

"We have a good squad and we dedicate this win to Radamel Falcao."

Up next for Monaco in Ligue 1 is an away game against Lorient on February 1.
