Rumor is a Latin word that made it to the English-speaking world, to indicate those speculations or alleged pieces of news with no official confirmation. For Napoli and their supporters, the Summer of 2018 has been characterized by a very insistent and fascinating one: President Aurelio De Laurentiis is allegedly negotiating Edinson Cavani’s come back from PSG.
Juventus’ signing of Cristiano Ronaldo will go down as the big hit of this summer’s transfer market. But other Serie A clubs have not been sitting on their hands. Napoli secured the services of coach Carlo Ancelotti, and now dreams of bringing back Edinson Cavani. Inter stole some key players from their direct opponents, whereas Roma decided to bet on fresh forces.
Here is our new selection of the most impressive players seen during the Round of 16 and the Quarter Finals. We did have a few doubts, if truth be told, especially among the posts and on the sidelines. Therefore, we chose to keep some experience in the key roles, and leave room to those who have the age and the skills on their side to complete our ideal lineup.
Et voila! Without Edinson Cavani’s genius – kept at bay by an injury – Uruguay evidenced their limits, and bent their knee to France. Les Bleus won 2-0 their Quarter Final match in Nizhny Novgorod with goals by Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann, showing cynicism and team solidarity. France’s next opponents in the Semi Finals will be Belgium.
Edinson Cavani put together an impressive performance last night in Sochi, sealed by a killer brace, to push Uruguay ahead of Portugal and into the Quarter Finals. Cristiano Ronaldo found himself trapped into coach Oscar Tabarez’s spider web, and ultimately had to bid farewell to World Cup 2018, just like Leo Messi had to do earlier in the afternoon.
Uruguay made it three, and the Celeste can now dream big. Three games, three wins, five goals scored and not a single one conceded for coach Oscar Washington Tabarez’s selection, which trampled Russia today in Samara, and won Group A with merit. Facing the host country of World Cup 2018, Uruguay produced an almost perfect performance.
When you are about to play a World Cup with Uruguay wearing a number 10 jersey, you cannot be an average player. Giorgian De Arrascaeta is all but that. The Cruzeiro midfielder is ready to support Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez in Russia. Coach Oscar Washington Tabarez designed a 4-3-1-2 lineup that seems perfectly fit for his technical skills.
