Radamel Falcao steps up rehab in hope to be fit for World CupFalcao is a key player for Colombia
The Colombian striker appears to have taken a big step towards featuring in this summer's spectacle in Brazil after he posted a picture on Instagram showing himself without crutches.
Radamel Falcao was previously thought to be out of the World Cup after suffering knee ligament damage.
The 28-year-old’s first months of recovery, however, have gone well and his manager at Monaco, Claudio Ranieri, believes he will be fit in time to feature for Colombia.
“He’s doing well and working hard. His knee is reacting very positively. I think he’ll play at the World Cup.”
Colombia will play Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan in Group C of the World Cup.
