Soner Erteck trends on Colombian Twitter, receives death threats for injuring Radamel Falcao

Colombia’s World Cup hopes are currently up in smoke, with golden boy Radamel Falcao suffering a ruptured ACL injury, and now unlikely to make the Mundial.

And the French conference player who committed the unfortunate act, Soner Ertek, an unknown in his own country, is now persona non grata in the eye of a Colombian storm.

On top of the Twitter death threats, the French minnows AS Chasselay have received diatribe emails written in Spanish, demanding life suspension for Ertek!

Below are a couple of tweets wishing death upon poor Ertek for accidentally injuring Radamel Falcao, while a screengrab of Colombia’s Twitter trends from last night can be seen above.
