Rodriguez, Falcao to play for Colombia in friendly vs. Canada

Posted by Juan Gavasa on October 06, 2014

Colombia has summoned stars James Rodriguez of Real Madrid and Radamel Falcao of Manchester United for international friendlies against Canada and El Salvador.

Both games are at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. The third-ranked Colombians face No. 72 El Salvador next Friday and No. 122 Canada on Oct. 14.

Rodriguez cost Real Madrid a reported 80 million euros (C$112.6 million) after the World Cup. Falcao joined Manchester United on a one-year loan from Monaco that will reportedly cost the Red Devils 24 million pounds (C$44 million), with the striker earning 265,000 pounds (C$475,000) a week.

The Canadians, meanwhile, have added 18-year-old Toronto FC striker Jordan Hamilton, currently on loan to Portugal's Trofense, to its roster.

The Colombia-Canada game is the second half of a doubleheader that also features No. 21 Ecuador against El Salvador at 7 p.m. ET.
