Enjoy Falcao when he was at his prime at Atletico Madrid!

Strong, powerful, and quick – these were all the traits of Colombian striker, Radamel Falcao, when he was at the peak of his career at Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2013.

Amassing 70 goals in only 91 matches, Falcao was amongst the world’s best goal-scorers at the time, leading to his mega transfer to AS Monaco for around $60 million.

Although Falcao continued to wow the world in Ligue 1, subsequent moves to clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea failed to reignite his best.

It was his time with the Colchoneros that Falcao shined the most, and he might have been a club legend had he stayed with Atletico for longer.

In FIFA 23, Falcao has not been forgotten, justified by his latest ‘Flashback’ player card that replicates his form while playing for Atletico Madrid in his first 2011/2012 season in La Liga.

In his debut season after arriving from Porto, Falcao scored a whopping 24 goals, impressing everyone in Spain.
