Uruguay are about to face Venezuela in the World Cup qualifiers, they need a positive result to secure their spot in next year’s finals, but Edinson Cavani couldn’t avoid Paris Saint-Germain-related questions, even that far away from France.
These are things that happen in football, they sometimes get so big, and we all know that they get bigger than they actually are
the Uruguay international was quoted saying by Spanish newspaper Marca, referring to the on-field ‘chat’ he had with Neymar in the game versus Lyon, when PSG won a penalty. The Brazilian wanted to take it himself, Cavani was already holding the ball, he ended up taking the penalty, missed it, while in the same game, Dani Alves had intervened to give Neymar the chance to take a free-kick, which Cavani had set his eyes on as well.
They are sorted out in the dressing room, everything has a solution, everything is quiet. The important thing is we all fight for the same goal
the Uruguayan striker also said. PSG won another penalty last weekend, when they hosted Bordeaux in the Ligue 1, and this time there was no… drama, Neymar took it, scored, and Cavani was the first one he went to, for a high-5 and a hug.
