Falcao gets Gary and Phil Neville mixed up during Manchester United dressing room tour

Radamel Falcao

Manchester United signing Radamel Falcao dropped the own goal during a tour of the Old Trafford dressing room.

Colombian international Radamel Falcao made his Manchester United debut against QPR, coming off the bench for the final 23 minutes.

He was given the star-billing in the build up to the game, so to see him start the match among the substitutes was a surprise to many.

As part of the build-up, SkySports' Geoff Shreeves was granted access to Falcao for an interview and tour of the Old Trafford dressing room, as he was seeing it for the very first time.

The striker's attention was taken by the pictures adorning the corridors at Old Trafford, picking out a picture of a United side from the 90s.

Keen to show knowledge of the players in the photograph, he made one crucial mistake - pointing to a picture of Gary Neville and calling him Phil Neville.

The gaffe brought much laughter from interviewer Shreeves, and Falcao nervously laughed off his mistake, after all, it was one he should really know.

Gary Neville was photographed alongside Falcao months ago, and the striker even follows him on Twitter.

Perhaps, just like having a shot surprisingly saved by Rob Green, Falcao's mistake was just that - an unusual deviation from being so deadly accurate.
