Capello: Falcao best I've seen since Barcelona star Messi

Russia coach Fabio Capello is a big fan of Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao.

Capello rates Falcao in the same class as Barcelona ace Lionel Messi.

"Throughout my entire career, there has been only one player who impressed me as much as Messi when I first saw him against my Juventus at the Joan Gamper trophy, and that is Radamel Falcao," Capello told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He is a fantastic striker, without a doubt the best around at the moment."
