Falcao Left Out Of Colombia Squad

share on:

Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao has been omitted from Colombia’s preliminary 40-man squad by Jose Pekerman.

The on-loan Monaco striker has not featured for his country since their 3-0 loss against Uruguay.

He went on to miss their next two matches due to injury, and was subsequently dropped for the world cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Ecuador.

AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca and Borussia Dortmund’s Adrian Ramos are expected to lead the attack for the tournament in the United States – which starts on June 3 – as Colombia look to add to their 2001 triumph.

Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez, on-loan Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado and Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina are the other names included in the squad, with no other major surprises.

Colombia begin the tournament with a clash against hosts the USA on the opening day, before facing other Group A opponents Paraguay and Costa Rica.
