Falcao Becomes Colombia’s all time Top Goalscorer
Falcao becomes Colombia’s all-time top goalscorer
Radamel Falcao is now the most prolific goalscorer in the history of the Colombia national team.
The 31-year-old striker scored in the 55th minute in an international friendly against Spain to give his side a 2-1 advantage. It was Falcao’s 26th goal for his country in 65 games and moved him into the sole spot at the top of Colombia’s goalscoring charts.
He passed Arnoldo Iguaran, who scored 25 goals playing in 68 matches for Colombia from 1973-1993.
It had been a long time coming for Falcao. His last goal for his country came on 6 June 2015, meaning he broke his international drought almost exactly two years to the day.
