(AP) -- Radamel Falcao went within one goal of Colombia's scoring record by netting a penalty on Monday to complete a 3-1 victory over Kuwait in a friendly.

Despite Falcao's struggles for Manchester United this season, the striker has netted three in two games for his country during the international break.

The Colombia captain scored from the penalty spot in the 74th minute, taking his international tally to 24 - one short of retired striker Arnoldo Iguaran's national record.
