Manchester United forward Radamel Falcao got off the mark for his club last weekend, and he did the same for Colombia yesterday.

The United forward found the net against El Salvador with a trademark header into the top corner, giving the opposition goalkeeper no chance.

World Cup heartache

Having missed Colombia’s thrilling run to the World Cup quarterfinals last summer, Falcao will be itching to make up for lost time. In his absence, stars like James Rodriguez and Juan Cuadrado rose to the fore, and Colombia now have a formidable lineup.

Falcao found the target after just eight minutes, rising highest at the back post to head back across goal and into the net.

It was a routine game for the South Americans after that, as they ran out 3-0 winners over lacklustre opposition.

Falcao back for his country

The game was Falcao’s first for his country in nine months, after a serious knee injury suffered in the Coupe de France back in January.

Manchester United will just be delighted the 28-year-old loan signing came through this one unscathed, as they will need his goals this season if they’re to get back into the Champions League qualification spots.

The other goalscorer for Colombia in the win was Sevilla forward Carlos Bacca.
