Radamel Falcao García Zárate, commonly known as Falcao, is a Colombian football striker, who currently plays for Atlético Madrid in the Spanish La Liga and represents the Colombia national football team. He is also sometimes referred to as El Tigre, and called the King of the Europa League.

He has played an active role in guiding Porto to a second UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League title, as well as finishing undefeated in the 2010–11 Primeira Liga season.

He has also played a key role in Atlético Madrid's 12 match winning streak in a single Europa League season. He is the first player in history to win two consecutive European titles with two different teams while at the same time becoming the top goal scorer for those two teams. Falcao's father has played professional football as a defender in Colombia.
