Manchester United fans must be looking forward to watching Radamel Falcao in action, but they would be disappointed with his performance for Colombia against Brazil on Saturday.
The 28-year-old striker, who joined the Red Devils from AS Monaco on a season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day, came on as a substitute for James Rodriguez in the 77th minute.
It was the first time that Falcao was playing for his country after recovering a long-term knee injury that forced him to miss the 2014 World Cup.
And it could have been a great return had the former FC Porto and Atletico Madrid star been able to keep his 89th-minute header on target.
Barcelona forward Neymar broke the deadlock in the friendly international at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida with a brilliant free kick in the 83rd minute.
However, Falcao could have earned a draw for Colombia in the dying minutes of the encounter played in front of almost 75,000 spectators, but his header from inside the Selecao’s six-yard box from an Adrian Ramos cross sailed over the bar.
Falcao, though, fared better than his Colombia international teammate and reported £40 million summer target for United, Juan Cuadrado.
The Fiorentina winger, who had a brilliant World Cup and was believed to be on the radars of the Manchester outfit and Barcelona, was sent off for two bookable offences in the 49th minute.
