Chelsea target Radamel Falcao could feature for Colombia at next summer's World Cup in Brazil as he is making positive steps after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury.

The 28-year-old was originally expected to miss the tournament in Brazil due to the severity of the injury he picked up at the end of January.

However the Colombian national team appear to have received a major boost as Falcao is reportedly on course to play some part at the World Cup.

Doctor Jose Carlos Noronha, who will assess the fitness of Falcao later this month, believes the former Porto striker is 'on the right track'.

Speaking to L'Equipe, Noronha said on Falcao: "Each case is different but he is on the right track.

"He has recovered very well. I still believe he could play the World Cup, there is no reason why it could not work."

News of Falcao's success in his battle to return to injury will be music to the ears of Jose Mourinho and Chelsea fans alike.

Mourinho has made it no secret that he will be in the market for a world-class forward in the summer and £50million-rated Falcao is reportedly on the Portuguese tactician's transfer wish-list.
