On This Day: Radamel Falcao Steals The Souls Of Stones And Caballero With Ludicrous Chip
THIS STORY WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON 21ST FEBRUARY, 2017
Remember the bloke who masqueraded as Radamel Falcao for two seasons in the Premier League? Well it's safe to say he's long fucking gone and the brutal, centre half bullying Colombian nightmare that terrorised defences in Spain and Portugal has returned.
The Monaco number nine has been in fine form all season long after his dreadful couple of years in England and has enjoyed as eventful a game as he's ever had in his storied career, tonight.
The Ligue Un leaders are currently leading Manchester City 3-2 (That scoreline may have changed about half a dozen times before I finish this article, though) at the Etihad in a pulsating round of 16 tie in the Champions League and have the former Atletico Madrid hitman to thank for their advantage.
Falcao drew Monaco level in the first half with an old fashioned diving header before he sabotaged his team's advantage by missing a second half penalty and then gifting City possession just moments before Sergio Aguero equalised.
It wouldn't be long before 'El Tigre' atoned for his sins, though, and he did it in such a fashion that every expectant couple in Monte Carlo decided to name their impending children Radamel in honour of his gorgeous chipped effort sail over the helpless head of Willy Caballero and into the back of the net.

UPDATE: To celebrate the year anniversary of Falcao taking the souls of John Stones and Willy Caballero, Monaco have posted the goal again on their Twitter feed. Fair play it's literally posted above for you to watch, but quite frankly, you can't have too much of this goal.
Excuse me, I'm off for a very, very cold shower.
