It was his always dream to play in the World Cup. Then, at the age of 13, Falcao became the youngest footballer to ever compete in the professional league. From Argentina, Portugal, Spain, and now Monaco, God lead him to various teams, teaching many things. Success and recognition came as his career developed. Along with this popularity came pressure to perform - and learning to deal with it was a challenge. Falcao leaned into God, knowing He was there to help him overcome these pressures. Football, career, his life - in all these things Falcao has put the ultimate decision into God's hands. And it is because Falcao made the decision to follow Jesus Christ with his life.
