XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

Uruguay star Cavani not ruled out of World Cup quarterfinal    

MONTEVIDEO Uruguay (Xinhua) -- Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani will not be ruled out of their World Cup quarterfinal match against France, despite suffering from swelling in his left leg, the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) said on Monday.

The AUF says Cavani underwent an MRI scan which confirmed he had an “oedemic injury” on the calf muscle of his left leg, but that no damage to muscle fibers was reported.

Speaking about the player, the AUF commented that Cavani “continues to be in pain” but that he will undertake physical rehabilitation to control the injury’s development.

Uruguay and France are set to meet on Friday at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in the city of the same name, with both teams hoping to progress into the semifinals of the 2018 Russia World Cup.

The 31-year-old Cavani scored twice in a 2-1 victory over Portugal before limping off in obvious pain.

AUF medical staff reported that “the rest of the team is in order.”
