Yesterday’s matches (26 March 2015) were notable for the fact that the football world was relatively quiet in terms of fixtures. Sadly for Man Utd manager Louis van Gaal, though, under par striker Radamel Falcao delivered a two-goal performance for his native Colombia.
Despite finding the net again, the concern regarding Falcao’s two goals is that they came against Bahrain – certainly not the most challenging of opponents. Falcao will have to prove in his next Man Utd match that he can perform in situations of greater difficulty.
In other results, the Ivory Coast notched up a solidly unspectacular 2-0 win over Angola. The current African Cup of Nations champions did not excel.
Lastly, the oddest result of the evening came courtesy of the Carlos Queiroz-coached Iran, who managed to defeat Chile 2-0. After flying high at last summer’s World Cup in Brazil, Chile have slumped considerably.
