The pretty-darn-famous Radamel Falcao netted 3 times in Colombia’s recent international friendly matches with Bahrain and Kuwait to bring his scoring record for the Colombian national side to 24 goals in 56 games, equaling Colombia’s all-time goalscoring record…set by…you guessed it… Arnoldo Iguarán…(controversy alert: lots of sources say he […]
