Edinson Cavani Biography

Édinson Roberto Cavani Gómez is a Uruguayan footballer who plays as a striker for Napoli and the Uruguayan national team. Edinson Cavani joined Danubio and came up through their youth system to make his debut for the first team in 2006. He was part of the Apertura 2006 championship-winning squad, scoring nine goals in his debut season. On 31 January 2007, he was bought by Palermo for €4.475 million. Cavani made his debut on 11 March 2007 in a home league match against Fiorentina. In July 2010, Cavani signed a reported five-year contract with Napoli. Cavani scored twice in his first start, as Napoli beat Elfsborg in the Europa League 2–0 and qualified for the main tournament. He then started his Napoli Serie A in spectacular fashion, scoring a controversial goal on Fiorentina after just seven minutes. On 14 September 2011, Cavani scored the opener in Napoli's first game of their Champions League campaign, a 1–1 away draw at Manchester City. Four days later, on 18 September, he scored a hat-trick against Milan in Napoli's 3–1 home win. Cavani's first goal of the Serie A season came on 26 August, netting the final goal of Napoli's 3-0 defeat of former club Palermo. In January 2007, Cavani was selected to join the Uruguay national football team Under-20 squad to play in the 2007 South American Youth Championship in Paraguay. He finished the tournament as top scorer with seven goals in nine games, helping the team to a place in the World Youth Championship.
