Falcao to miss World Cup

Colombian star striker Radamel Falcao will miss the World Cup after the country submitted their final 23 players for the tournament and the Monaco frontman was kept off of the list.

Jose Pekerman announced the news to a press conference and the news is sure to damage Colombia's hopes at the tournament in Brazil. Falcao has been struggling since knee surgery in January picked up during a game for Monaco in the domestic cup.

"We can say to all of Colombia that he did more than was within his power to play," said Pekerman. "He deserved the right for us to wait and keep the hope alive."
