The Colombia captain dedicated his 64th minute penalty to River Plate player Quintero who damaged his cruciate ligament last week.

Radamel Falcao bagged his 33rd goal for the Colombian national side as his solitary strike from the penalty spot was enough for the "Cafeteros" to see off Japan in Yokahama in a friendly game.

As part of the celebration, the Monaco player headed for the Colombia bench and displayed the No. 20 shirt with the name of Juan Fernando Quintero paying tribute to the River Plate player and compatriot who damaged his cruciate ligament last week in a Superliga Argentina match. 

Colombia are next in action on Tuesday as they face South Korea in the capital Seoul on Tuesday.
