Colombia has announced and confirmed to the public that RadamelFalcao will not be featured in the upcoming friendly matches that the Colombian national football team has scheduled to play against United States and Slovenia on November 14 and 18.

Manchester United struggled just to claim a victory against the relegation threatened club Crystal Palace in a match that was decided by a lonely goal from Juan Mata and Louis van Gaal will need all of his players without injuries and without physical concerns if the Dutch coach wants to collect a good result against Arsenal.
