Bahrain 0-6 Colombia

Juan Cuadrado and Radamel Falcao

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao scored twice as Colombia beat Bahrain in an international friendly.

Falcao, who has netted four times in 22 matches at United on loan from Monaco, is now only one goal short of Arnoldo Iguaran's Colombia record of 24.

Carlos Bacca scored from Falcao's pass before the striker scored twice in four minutes - a volley and a low strike.

Second-half goals from Adrian Ramos and debutants Johan Mojica and Andres Renteria sealed the convincing victory.

Falcao missed the World Cup in Brazil last year after knee ligament surgery and has now scored 23 goals in 55 internationals.

His loan spell at Old Trafford, worth £265,000 per week, expires at the end of the season when United must decide whether to take up a £43.5m option to buy him.

Earlier this week, Falcao suggested he may leave the Premier League side when he said: "I need to find a place where I have continuity and I can play."

Falcao played for 72 minutes against Bahrain before being substituted.
