Radamel Falcao not on Colombia team for USMNT friendly

Michael Regan

Colombia has their team to play the United States in a friendly on Friday, and Radamel Falcao is not part of it. The striker, who missed the World Cup because of a knee injury, has been dealing with some knee issues and will not play for Colombia this month as he takes some time off to get healthy.

The rest of the Colombia team for the friendly is strong. James Rodriguez is part of the squad and the star. He will have Teofilo Gutierrez, Jackson Martinez and Adrian Ramos to feed up top and Fredy Guarin and Juan Cuadrado join him in the midfield.

All in all, it's a strong team and nearly the best that Colombia has. Seeing as they are one of the better teams in the world, that will be more than enough of a test for the American side.

The match kicks off at 2:45 p.m. ET on Friday and will be televised on ESPN.
