Radamel Falcao, a striker for the Colombian national team, was supposed to be one of the guys that everybody would be talking about during the upcoming 2014 World Cup.

And unfortunately, that knee injury turned out to be worse than expected:

What a bad break for Colombia—and for all of the soccer fans out there who were hoping to get a glimpse of Falcao on the world's biggest stage.
