Radamel Falcao's Top 5 Goals

Posted by Juan Gavasa on September 11, 2014

Radamel Falcao is in line to make his Manchester United debut against QPR this weekend following his deadline day transfer. The Colombian striker joined on a season-long loan deal from Ligue 1 side Monaco as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his attacking options. As the 28-year-old prepares for his Premier League debut, here is a selection of his best goals to whet your appetite.

Porto 1-0 Braga, Europa League final - May 2011

A scrappy Europa League final at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin was settled by the Colombian's header just before half-time. Falcao adjusted his body by flinging his legs in the opposite direction, and guiding a header into the top corner.

Although Barcelona came back to record a resounding victory, Falcao gave an experienced defence all kinds of problems in the first half. He threathened with a header that hit the post early on before latching on to a through ball and rolling his shot wide of the far post. But, on the half hour mark, Falcao left Sergio Busquets trailing in his wake before an exquisite chip over Victor Valdes to give Atletico the lead.

America Cali 1-2 Atletico Madrid, friendly - May 2012

This goal came on Atletico's mini tour of Colombia at the end of the 2011-12 season. It needs little explaining. A corner came in, and Falcao smashed it into the top corner with a stunning scissor kick.

Another one that needs little explaining. The striker shows just how athletic he is by thumping an overhead kick into the far corner.

Falcao looked to have lost his way after cutting inside having initially been set free with a through ball. But the Colombian took another touch to get the ball out of his feet before firing into the top corner, with the help of the crossbar, from outside the penalty area.
