A match between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, which was held at the Stade Louis II in Monaco in Sept. 1 (local time) as a Union of European Football Associations Super Cup, surprised many soccer fans regarding the result. Although Chelsea’s strength was expected to be better than the Madrid, Madrid was able to dominate the game by scoring 4 goals, while 3 out of 4 goals was made by ‘El Tigre’ Radamel Falcao. Falcao is also known as the ‘Best striker in the terrestrial world.’
This term was made to separate with the Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid C.F) and Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona), the players who scores a lot of goals currently than any other players in the league. By showing his ability as a striker at River Plate in Argentina, he managed to be transferred to FC Porto in 2009 and as team member of Porto in 2010-2011 season, he recorded 33 goals in 36 matches, being able to make a huge devotion for his team to hold the trophy in the league without being lost in the any other matches. Techniques speed, and finishing, Falcao shot 5 out of 5 on the target only in the first half, while scoring 3 goals and hitting the bar 2 times at the UEFA Super Cup.
Falcao has a rare record, a player who achieved to hold the trophy two season in a row hosted by UEFA, one in FC Porto and one in Atletico Madrid respectively, while scoring 17 goals at the Europa League in the previous season, which was the tournaments’ new record. Although direct comparison is invalid, Lionel Messi scored 14 goals at the UEFA Champions League in the last season. However, this record can prove Falcao’s decent ability. Currently, he is on the parting way. As his team ranked on fifth place in the previous season, the team didn’t manage to be qualified in the UEFA Champions League. As a result, many other qualified teams are trying Falcao to be in their team. Although Falcao stayed in his team, and became able to challenge the record against his record, possibility to be transferred to the other team still exists. However, no matter where he goes, it has been proved that he can be adapted to any other teams.
