Radamel Falcao struck his first Primera Division goals for Atletico Madrid last night.

Falcao scored a hat-trick as Atletico Madrid swept aside Racing Santander4-0 at the Vicente Calderon.

The Colombian striker, a club-record signing at an initial €40 million from Porto over the summer, scored his first goal in Spanish football with an accurate shot on the turn from Jose Reyes' cut-back before slotting away his second from the penalty spot 10 minutes before half-time.

Atleti were equally as dominant in the second period and Falcao completed his hat-trick with a delicate chip over Tono Ramirez 10 minutes into the second half.

Adrian Lopez added the fourth with a downward header from Arda Turan's fine cross with 12 minutes remaining.
