Radamel Falcao is one of the 55 players mentioned on the shortlist for the FIFA FIFPro World XI. The Colombian striker from Atlético Madrid talks with FIFPro amongst others about his own performance in the year 2012.

 

Last Sunday, when Lionel Messi caught all headlines after breaking the world record for goals scored, there was also another South American striker in Spain rewriting history. Radamel Falcao demonstrated how to score goals, as. El Tigre helped Atlético crush Deportivo la Coruña 6-1 by making 5 goals. His efficiency was amazing: five shots and five goals.

 

Falcao proved himself as a complete goalscorer, as all his five goals were totally different: the first a clinical finish one on one with the goalkeeper, the second he lashed home from the edge of the penalty area, the third a cool penalty, the fourth a diving header and the fifth a strong finish after turning away from his opponent.

 

Althoug Falcao is far from Messi’s record breaking tally of 86 goals, the Colombian striker has now score 43 goals in 44 matches in 2012, including five goals in two finals: two against Athletic Bilbao (to win the Europa League) and three against Chelsea (to clinch the European Super Cup).

 

Recently, FIFPro visited Radamel Falcao at Atlético Madrid and seized the opportunity to do an interview with the prolific striker, who is hoping for his first FIFA FIFPro World XI award.
