  • Colombia will reportedly wait until the 11th hour to make a final decision on whether to include injured striker Radamel Falcao in their final World Cup squad, less than a month before the tournament gets underway.

    Falcao is still recuperating from surgery after sustaining knee ligament damage during a French Cup tie in January while playing for Monaco in a 3-0 win at Chasselay Monts d'or Azergues.

    The incident occured on 22 January earlier this year, with recovery time for such an injury sometimes requiring up to nine months to return to full fitness.

    Colombia coach Jose Pekerman said: "I'll wait until the last day, until the last hour, the last minute."

    Pekerman will name his final 23-man squad by the deadline of 2 June, the 2014 World Cup starting in Brazil 10 days later with Colombia going up against Group C opposition including Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan.

    A double Europa League winner, Falcao has played 51 national games for Colombia and scored 20 times as an international player since 2007.

    In 13 appearances during 2014 World Cup qualification matches, Falcao was equally as dangerous in front of goal as he netted a total of nine goals to see Colombia through to the summer tournament.

    The 27-year-old admitted that he "will not be 100%" even if he makes the World Cup, which would be the striker's first appearance in a World Cup finals tournament. Compare Colombia's betting odds for the 2014 World Cup here.
