Paris: Star Colombian striker Radamel Falcao admitted Sunday that he still doesn`t know if he will recover from his long-standing knee injury in time to play at the World Cup.

The Monaco player suffered serious knee ligament damage in a French Cup tie on January 22 and has not played since.

Despite his four-month absence, he was named in Colombia`s 30-man squad for the June 12-July 13 World Cup in Brazil with June 2 set as the deadline day for the final list of 23 players to be decided.

"I don`t know yet if I will be ready," Falcao told Canal+.

"A decision will be taken in a few days, depending on my physical condition. I am doing a lot better. My health and physical state have improved, my knee is getting better and better.

"The objective is clear -- to recover quickly to take part in the World Cup. That would be fantastic."
