This season El Tigre's scored 22 goals in La Liga. This impressive haul takes him to third in La Liga’s goalscoring charts – only Messi and Ronaldo are in front of him. On top of that, his eight goals in the Europa League have fired Atlético into the semi-finals of the competition.
Lethal with both feet imperious in the air despite his 5’10 height, Falcao is now even more explosive as he dons a pair of the new blue v1.11 Speed boots. Designed to suit technical footballers who like to play the game at break-neck pace, the new blue colour is just as cool as the Colombian is in front of goal. Expect fireworks.
Falcao is not your typical footballer. He trained as a journalist, is the leader of two Church groups and is nicknamed The Tiger but the only thing you really need to know about Radamel Falcao García Zárate is that he scores goals. Lots of them.
The 25-year-old Colombian striker is right now one of the world’s greatest forwards. In fact last year after an incredible season for Porto in which he scored 17 goals in the Europa League - the most goals ever scored by an individual in a European tournament – he was voted the fifth best player in Europe and the second best striker in the world.
He’s been compared to the Brazilian legend Ronaldo and the current world’s greatest player Lionel Messi has already confessed his admiration for the Atlético star, saying that one day "I'd like to play with him” and in today’s game you won’t receive a greater tribute than that!
