Falcao was so bad for Colombia that Chelsea fans are begging Jose Mourinho to reconsider signing him - or sign Emile Heskey

Falcao managed just one shot on target in three games

Radamel Falcao has not had a good tournament at the Copa America so far.

Jose Pekerman's side just managed to scrape into the knockout stages despite scoring just one goal in their three matches in the group stage, winning just one game, 1-0.

Falcao has been a real problem for them in the tournament and in three matches has registered just one shot on target, continuing the kind of poor performances that brought him just four goals for Manchester United last season.

He was hauled off in the poor 0-0 draw against Peru on Sunday night and the striker, who is linked with a move to Chelsea, did not impress fans of the Blues.

In fact, so poor was Falcao that Chelsea fans actively begged manager Jose Mourinho to reconsider going through with his signing - even suggesting that Emile Heskey would be a better option for the reigning Premier League champions.

Here are a few of the best Tweets:
