Striker Radamel Falcao gave a timely reminder of his talent by adding his international goal tally to three goals in two games.
He netted for Colombia against Kuwait from the penalty spot in a 3-1 win, adding to his brace against Bahrain days earlier.
While hardly the strongest opposition (Bahrain world ranking 104, Kuwait world ranking 125), it is simply progress for the forward to get back to scoring again.
Falcao has not netted since January, having fallen out of favour at loan club Manchester United and been an unused substitute in recent matches.
The break away from the club has been ideal for him and he seems to be re-energised by wearing the shirt of his national team.
Now as he prepares to return to Old Trafford for the remainder of the season, he will have an added confidence, which the Red Devils can try to take advantage of.
Their next game is against Aston Villa, one of the four clubs he has scored against for United, and Louis van Gaal will have to consider giving him game time.
Here is a look at how United fans reacted on Twitter to his goal...
Robin van Persie is currently out injured and Wayne Rooney will return a day later than Falcao as England play Italy only on Tuesday night, meaning he will potentially be that little bit fresher than the England captain.
Falcao keeps scoring for his national team for fun. So why can't he do that for United? #MUFC— Shah S Afzal (@perennialpurist) March 30, 2015
This international break has done falcao the world of good! he can deliver for us in these last 8 games if he gets the game time #MUFC— James Winterbottom (@Jamesicey) March 30, 2015
Radamel Falcao finally gaining confidence.Would love see him start against Aston Villa to help him continue with that confidence.#MUFC— Abdul-Shaqur (@AbdulShaqur3) March 30, 2015
I can see #mufc splashing £45 million on Falcao now he has scored a brace against Bahrain and a penalty against Kuwait.— Jason Gillson (@Jace_Gillson) March 30, 2015
I reckon Falcao will need to score at least 5 goals from the last 8 games to have any chance of earning a permanent move. #mufc— Mark Lenehan (@LENEHAN_) March 30, 2015
