Colombia beats Belgium 2-0 in exhibition game

Radamel Falcao and Victor Ibarbo scored to help Colombia beat

Belgium 2-0 on Thursday in an exhibition game between top-five

teams.

In a showdown between two potential stars next year in the World

Cup, Falcao got the better of Eden Hazard, if only because of his

decisive strike.

In the 52nd minute, Falcao broke open the tight game when he

beat the offside trap and swerved past goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to

score.

Victor Ibarbo added a goal for fourth-ranked Colombia in the

67th minute.

Belgium is ranked fifth.
