#WorldCupRank: No. 18 Edinson Cavani

« Previous: No. 19, Radamel Falcao | Next: No. 16, Arturo Vidal »

No. 18 Edinson Cavani, PSG/Uruguay

Why he's ranked: This former Napoli scoring threat was cast into the role of secondary striker behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Paris Saint-Germain this season and may face a similar issue lining up alongside Luis Suarez for Uruguay this summer (assuming Suarez is fit after undergoing knee surgery May 22). That said, Cavani's brand of high-octane, endlessly energetic, intelligent forward play makes him a threat to any defender in the game.

Edinson Cavani will take the mantle from the injured Luis Suarez as Uruguay look to impress.
Edinson Cavani may have to shoulder the load for the Uruguay attack if Luis Suarez can't play due to injury.

Key stat: T-2nd in goals in the French Ligue 1 with 16; only Ibrahimovic had more goals this season.

What the experts say: "Cavani is a powerful forward who doesn't lack technique and wins games with his never-surrender attitude. He has plenty of goals to offer but, at the same time, can make a very important contribution when his teams switch into defensive mode. Together with Luis Suarez, forms probably the deadliest attacking duo in the competition." - Vito De Palma, ESPN Argentina
