Opponent Watch: Uruguay sweating on striker Cavani’s injury

Edinson Cavani will miss Valencia’s match against Real Betis on Thursday as the Uruguay striker recovers from an ankle injury with only two weeks to go until their World Cup opener against South Korea.

Valencia coach Gennaro Gattuso said he hoped Cavani can feature at the tournament in Qatar despite his right ankle still being swollen.

“Edi in the last five or six days has done everything to be able to play but the ankle is very swollen and in pain,” Gattuso told a news conference on Wednesday.

“He has shown great availability but he can’t train.”

The 35-year-old attacker has scored four goals in seven games this LaLiga season with Valencia, but the coach revealed he has been receiving constant treatment after he was forced off against Barcelona at the end of October.
