Radamel Falcao netted a stunning last minute winner for Atletico Madrid at Real Sociedad yesterday.

Falcao showed again why he is rated as one of the best goalscorers on the planet after curling in a brilliant late free-kick to earn high-flying Atletico Madrid victory over Real Sociedad.

The match at the Anoeta looked set to finish in a draw until Falcao stepped up in the 90th minute to strike home a 25-yard free-kick that left Sociedad goalkeeper Enaut Zubikarai grasping at thin air.

That was Falcao's 12th goal of the season in all competitions for Atletico and helped the Rojiblancos earn a sixth successive league victory that moved them back level on 22 points with Primera Division leaders Barcelona.
