Edinson Cavani continues to make his critics take seats and I am LOVING it!
El Matador is on a roll for both country and club. Last night, he was instrumental in Uruguay’s 3-0 victory against Venezuela, scoring a brace although Venezuela was the livelier side. Nicolas Lodeiro struck first. Cavani scored seconds after the break and again in the 79th minute to make it 3-0.
Uruguay remains on top of the CONMEBOL group while Venezuela remains at the bottom (and winless) after 9 matches.
Cavani is now tied with Diego Forlán (36 goals) as Uruguay’s top scorer. Only Luis Suárez has more: 46
Cavani is the current leading scorer in:
Europe’s top 5 leagues – 8 goals
CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying – 7 goals
Champions League – 3 goals
Keep doing you, boy! ❤
