Carlos Bacca was one of the many Rossoneri called up to their respective national teams for this latest round of international fixtures. Whilst he has been away on international duty with Colombia, Carlos Bacca's home in Trezzano Sul Naviglio has been subject to a burglary. Reports state that the thieves broke in through the front gate after smashing it down with a Mini Cooper. They then proceeded to make off with the striker's jewellery as well as his Porsche. Instances of footballers being targeted by criminals in Italy are becoming increasingly common, with a number of other players having been robbed in various circumstances this season alone.

If there is something positive to take from this, it is that Bacca has continued his good form with Los Cafeteros, bagging a goal in their 3-2 victory over Bolivia on Thursday, and is slated for an appearance in their match against Ecuador this Monday. Colombia are currently ranked eighth in FIFA's rankings, and Milan's representation on a team of Colombia's calibre should be a source of pride. Milanisti can only hope that the experience won't affect the Colombian forward's affinity for Milan or his performances on the pitch, as he has been a crucial factor in Milan's success so far this season, with 14 Serie A goals to his name.
