PSG forward Edinson Cavani talks about the World Cup and winning the tournament
Paris Saint-Germain and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani has admitted to dreaming about repeating La Celeste’s 1950 World Cup triumph in this year’s tournament.
Uruguay won their second World Cup at Brazil 1950 and beat the hosts in the final at Estádio do Maracanã.
And now Cavani conceded to dreaming about something similar after Globo Sport TV posted the interview where the Uruguayan said: “For the historical meaning, winning the Cup in Brazil as an athlete nowadays would certainly be something beautiful.
“But I do not like to think what might prove to be, it is a dream we can have. And dreams, as they say, are free.
“These things do stimulate the mind and you are able to grow. So who knows what will happen?”
The 26-year-old, who has been targeted by Manchester United recently, also talked about the group stages of the World Cup, which saw Uruguay pitted against England, Italy and Costa Rica.
He interestingly prefers to focus on the fact that his nation qualified for the World Cup rather than worry about the matches and making predictions.
“Sometimes we take the time to not think that Uruguay today, after a long journey of four years of great sacrifice, qualified for the World Cup,” stated Cavani.
“Today we only think of our group and the first phase, which will be complicated.
“I honestly do not like it. I prefer to live in the moment and enjoy today, knowing that Uruguay has qualified and be happy about it.”
