Cavani: Why I Wanted To Swap Shirts With Salah

Edinson Cavani: Why I Wanted To Swap Shirts With Mohamed Salah

By Keegan Kruger - Jun 19, 2018 09:28 AM @KeeganKruger

Uruguay superstar Edinson Cavani has revealed why he asked Liverpool and Egypt forward Mohamed Salah for his shirt after his team's 2018 FIFA World Cup match against the Pharaohs last Friday.

Frustrated Germany Star Slams Team Tactics After Mexico Loss

The 26-year-old Premier League Golden Boot winner, who was not named in his team's starting XI against the Uruguayans, was forced to watch his country go down 1-0 from the bench as Jose Gimenez scored an 89th-minute winner for the South Americans.

Paris Saint-Germain frontman Cavani managed to track the African star down after the final whistle and exchanged shirts with him for one solid reason. 

"I took Salah's shirt as a gift for my children, who also see him as a star," the striker explained, as quoted by the Daily Metro.

The 31-year-old also admitted that his team's performance on Friday was not quite up to standard, and feels they will need to improve if they want to progress in the competition. 

"A draw would have left a bitter taste because Uruguay deserved to win," Cavani added.

"We created a lot of chances, maybe without playing so well and in a moment we all fell into the feeling that the ball did not want to enter the net.

"We won, and that is what matters. We are happy although we know that we have things to improve. Now we have to rest and think on Wednesday."
