Cavani’s footballing Career
A talented number 9, Edinson Cavani played at several youth clubs in Uruguay, such as Club Nacional, Club Penarol, Club Remeros, Club Salto Uruguay, and Club Ferro Carril. He then got the opportunity to join the u-19 setup of Danubio.
He quickly joined the senior team of Danubio and helped the club win the Uruguayan championship. Because of his exemplary performance, a lot of top football clubs in Europe, including Juventus and AC Milan, were interested in signing him. However, Cavani made the right choice by joining Palermo FC, who were good at developing youngsters.
After his brilliant season with Palermo FC, Napoli FC, an Italian supper club signed him on a loan deal with an obligation to buy in 2010. His goal-scoring prowess in the second season at the club became so developed, that his fans started calling him “ El Matador”. In his last year at Palermo FC, he helped the club reach the European qualifying stage, but unfortunately, they missed out on a UEFA champions league qualification stage. He had a brilliant goal-scoring campaign with Napoli in his first season, scoring 25 SERIE A goals, and becoming the highest goal scorer for Napoli at that time, which was later broken by the talented Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain. In his final season with Napoli, he became the top goal scorer in SERIE A, with 29 goals.
Later, Paris Saint Germain, one of the richest French football clubs in the world acquired his services for a fee of 64 Million Euros. This is the fifth largest transfer in history and the record signing in the French league at that time. He won the Ligue 1 title 6 times with the club, Ligue 1 golden boot twice, and the Ligue 1 player of the year in the 2017 season. He became the highest goal scorer in the history of Paris Saint Germain on 27th January 2018. Because of his success with Paris Saint Germain, he became a club legend for the French side.
The Uruguayan forward eventually left the club in 2020 and joined Manchester United FC, one of the famous clubs not only in England but across the world. It was yet another exemplary season for Cavani, where he was the club’s 3rd highest goal scorer in his debut campaign. He helped Manchester United FC acquire a second-place finish in the English premier league and also helped them reach the UEFA Europa League final, where they, unfortunately, lost to Villareal on penalties.
He is a hero for the Uruguayan national team, being one of the most consistent strikers in the world behind Luis Suarez, who is one of the best players of all time. He broke into the Uruguayan senior national team in 2008, and also scored in his debut in a 2-2 draw against Columbia.
However, his first moment of brilliance for the national team came in the 2010 FIFA world cup. He assisted Luis Suarez with the goal, which helped Uruguay to win the group and advance to the knockout stages. This was a huge feat for Uruguay national team, as they have failed to qualify for the last world cup in 2006. He helped the team finish 4 in the 2010 FIFA world cup while he also scored in the bronze medal match against Germany, where they, unfortunately, could not win.
His next moment of celebrity stats came, when he finished as the top scorer of COMEMBOL 2018 FIFA World cup qualification campaign, as he scored 10 goals. He also helped Uruguay reach the quarterfinals of the 2018 FIFA world cup, but could not contribute later due to hamstring injuries. He was pivotal in the round of 16 matches against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, where he headed for the first goal assisted by Luis Suarez, and also scored a second goal, which was a thing of beauty.
Currently, the Uruguayan Striker is the 3rd highest capped player in the Uruguayan national team and is the 2nd highest goal scorer in the national team’s history with 53 goals, 11 behind Luis Suarez, who is one of the best players of all time.
