Falcao hopeful of making World Cup following 'spectacular' injury progress

The Monaco striker is happy with the progress he is making as he recovers from the injury he picked up in January and feels he could be fit for the tournament in Brazil

Radamel Falcao remains hopeful that he can be fit in time to represent Colombia in the World Cup this summer.

The Monaco striker damaged his cruciate knee ligaments at the start of the year and was expected to miss out on the tournament in Brazil this year.

However, the 28-year-old is happy at the speed of his recovery and believes he might be back to full fitness ahead of schedule.

"I am feeling well and the progress of my knee has been spectacular,” he told Monaco’s official TV station.  

“I work a bit more each day and my recovery is progressing in a positive way.

"I hope to recover well and be in the World Cup, although I am focused mostly on my job and this current moment."

The former Atletico Madrid striker went on to discuss his side’s progress in Ligue 1 this season and is happy to see them on track to reach the Champions League next term.

"I watch all Monaco matches, we will keep improving, there were many changes this season and we should not rush things, but our team are slowly feeling better, and our main goal is to play the Champions League next season."
