Cavani, a doubt for Uruguay vs France

Uruguay star and frontman Edinson Cavani looks likely to miss the much anticipated last 8 clash against France in Nizhny Novgorod. The forward hit the net twice as Uruguay cruised past Portugal to book a date with France, but the striker limped off the field with a calf injury nailing doubts on his participation on the Friday 6, July fixture.

According to reports from the ESPN, Cavani has missed three consecutive trainings and he is a serious doubt. Cavani, who plays in France for PSG, has scored three goals in four matches in Russia and is central to his country’s hopes of progress. The rest of the squad is fine.
