Brazil Dream Still Alive for El Tigre

Radamel Falcao could still feature at this summer’s World Cup after his doctor gave him a better than 50% chance of recovering in time. The Monaco star, nicknamed ‘El Tigre,’ watched from his hospital bed as his team-mates and supporters held a pre-match tribute. The striker was also visited in Porto by Colombia’s president Juan Manuel Santos.
