Daily Trust - - SPORT -

AS Monaco’s Colom­bian striker Radamel Fal­cao has re­vealed that he re­mains hope­ful he can com­pete in the World Cup as he re­cov­ers from a se­ri­ous knee in­jury.

“I hope that I can play in the World Cup, but it’s still too soon to be cer­tain,” said the Colom­bian at the Louis II Sta­dium to watch his team’s 3-1 win over Nantes on Sun­day.

“I’m re­cov­er­ing quickly. Phys­io­ther­apy is go­ing very well. I’m go­ing to re­turn to Spain to con­tinue my re­cov­ery. The knee has re­sponded very well, which al­lowed me to gain mo­men­tum in the work. I’m happy be­cause the evo­lu­tion is very pos­i­tive. I’m a lit­tle ahead of what was ex­pected, but we know very well that it’s day to day that we’ll see the evo­lu­tion. I have the de­sire and mo­ti­va­tion to re­turn.”
