Videos: Radamel Falcao on missing the World Cup due to injury
The decision to leave Radamel Falcao out of the Colombia squad appears to have very much been made by the player himself.
Falcao presented himself at the press conference to announce the 23-man Colombia squad with manager Jose Pekerman.
And, the Monaco striker described his feelings about being left out.
Primarily, Falcao did want to take the place of a fit player in the Colombia squad and also jeopardise his recovery from a serious knee injury.
The video below features Jose Pekerman, who describes it as his “saddest day” as Colombia coach, to announce Falcao won’t make it to Brazil.
