Edinson Cavani: Uruguay have a good feeling ahead of the World Cup

Uruguay international Edinson Cavani believes there is a ‘good feeling’within the squad ahead of the summer World Cup in Russia. The two-time champions underperformed during the previous edition of the tournament where they onlyreached the round of 16 stage in Brazil but Cavanisays the team has shown sufficient growth since then.

Speaking after the 3-0 win over Uzbekistan, Cavani said: “I think all Uruguayans have a good feeling because we have grown as a team, and also because we have shown a lot as a team. People have recognised that over time. I think this good feeling is important because we can feel it from the pitch and sometimes that is what we need to give that little extra in certain moments.”
