Watch: Man Utd’s Edinson Cavani digs out chance to score for Uruguay
Edinson Cavani showed why he is regarded as one of the most clinical strikers in world football during Uruguay’s 3-0 win over Colombia.
Having signed him on a free transfer, Manchester United will be looking forward to seeing first-hand what the 33-year-old is capable of in front of goal.
They got a taste when he came off the bench to finish the scoring in a 3-1 win over Everton, showing brilliant movement and composure in front of goal.
While on international duty with Uruguay, the striker has shown once again that if he is given a sniff then he’s going to get his goal.
After Nahitan Nandez robbed the ball in midfield, Cavani fired home a low right-footed shot to give Uruguay the lead inside the first five minutes.
Cavani 2 goals in 2 he’s just getting started ahhhh
