Radamel Falcao, left, and James RodriguezFour years ago, as Colombia prepared for its first World Cup in 16 years, Radamel Falcao struggled to get healthy.An ACL injury had sidelined him for nearly six months but Falcao waited until the week before the tournament to admit he wouldn&rsquo;t be able to play. His sadness soon turned to envy as he watched an unheralded 22-year-old teammate named James Rodriguez lead Colombia into the quarterfinals unbeaten.This summer both Rodriguez and Colombia could be even better thanks to Falcao, the country&rsquo;s all-time leading scorer, who will finally make his World Cup debut at 32.&ldquo;The story&rsquo;s different now,&rdquo; he told reporters before leaving for Russia. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m making the most of every moment with my teammates, getting us ready for this World Cup that we&rsquo;re very excited about.&rdquo;Brazil was Rodriguez&rsquo;s coming-out party. He finished as the tournament&rsquo;s leading scorer with six goals in five games, so he won&rsquo;t catch anyone by surprise this summer. Nor will Falcao, who was nominated for the 2017 Ballon d&rsquo;Or &mdash; awarded to the world&rsquo;s top player &mdash; and who has scored 51 goals in all competitions the last two seasons for Monaco of France&rsquo;s Ligue 1.Together they&rsquo;ve written a new chapter in Colombian soccer history, one they&rsquo;d like to conclude with a happy ending in Russia.
