Cavani gives Uruguay first Copa America win -Nexus News

Manchester United striker, Edinson Cavani, was on target for Uruguay against Bolivia in the Copa America.

He led his nation Uruguay to the last eight of the Copa America hosted in Brazil this summer.

The Uruguay team began their Copa America campaign with a 1-0 loss to Argentina before drawing 1-1 with Chile. The team needed to win against Bolivia to stand any chance of making it to the next round.

Cavani scored his 52nd goal for Uruguay on Thursday in the 2-0 Copa America victory over Bolivia, who became the first team to be eliminated from the competition.

The first goal of the match came from Bolivia goalkeeper Carlos Lampe who scored an unlucky own goal to open the scoring but at times almost single-handedly kept his side in the game.

Bolivia coach Cesar Farias complained that “The appearance of Covid weakened us. We’ve played well, we tried to play without making mistakes but we didn’t have any luck,”

Uruguay’s star boys Cavani and Suarez — the two most creative forwards in Uruguay’s history — were a disturbance to the Bolivian backline throughout the match, even if they didn’t always have their shooting boots on.
