ACL surgery for Falcao

Colombia striker Radamel Falcao will have surgery "in the next few days" to repair a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, AS Monaco confirmed Thursday.

"Following Wednesday's injury, Radamel Falcao made a diagnostic examination. It appears that the player is suffering from trauma in the left knee with lesion of ligament anterior cruciate," AS Monaco said in a statement Thursday.

"The player will have surgery in next few days. Doctors will do everything possible to speed up recovery."

The impending surgery puts Falcao's participation in the World Cup in doubt.

Falcao, 27, was carried off the pitch on a stretcher on Wednesday night following a heavy challenge by Soner Ertek in the 40th minute of Monaco's 3-0 Coupe de France win at  Monts d'Or Azergues.
