Monaco forward Radamel Falcao is awaiting expert opinion on the left knee injury he sustained on Coupe de France duty for his club on Wednesday.

Falcao was forced off in the last-32 cup match against fourth-tier side Monts Or Azergues, after a challenge from Soner Ertek. He had scored the opening goal and Monaco went on to win 3-0.

Reports in France have suggested the Colombian could face a long absence from the team, and may also be in danger of missing the summer's World Cup.
