Cavani hopes calf injury 'is nothing' ahead of France quarter-final

Cavani hopes calf injury 'is nothing' ahead of France quarter-final

Edinson Cavani, who failed to finish the match after suffering a late injury, scored a superb goal in each half, and although Pepe scored in-between, it was not enough to halt the Uruguayans, who have now won all four of their matches so far in Russian Federation.

Edinson Cavani has scored twice to lead Uruguay to a 2-1 win over Cristiano Ronaldo and European champion Portugal in the round of 16 at the World Cup.

"I learnt that in Italy when I worked there".

Tabarez saluted man-of-the-match Cavani but said he was not sure whether the Paris St Germain striker, who limped off in the 74th minute, would be ready for next Friday's quarter-final against France.

"But I think we have a really good defense to control him - but not just one player, the (whole) France team". "I can not talk about his recovery from injury, but I know that he has the desire, the attitude and is making the effort to do everything to be there - it does not only depend on him, though". "But there are injuries that can be quickly healed and others for which there is no miracle cure".

But it was also made apparent that Didier Deschamps' defensive system is vulnerable, and Cavani would have been key to Uruguay unpicking it.

"Uruguay without Cavani is not the same thing". With the victory over Mexico, Brazil has booked a place in the quarterfinals of the World Cup.

"But their way of playing and defending, won't change too much I don't reckon". They let in very few goals. "Uruguay have shown we depend on collective work on the pitch". "It's up to us to put ourselves in a position to bother them", he added.
