Palermo[ edit ] To this day.
Batistuta wasn't a typical striker. A powerful footballer who was incredibly effective in front of goal. I always tried to copy him. After Amauri's departure to Juventus in June , Cavani cemented his place in the starting lineup, forming a striking partnership with Fabrizio Miccoli and scoring a total 14 goals in the —09 season , earning the nickname "El Matador" due to his composure in front of goal.
In April , he signed a new contract with Palermo valid to June He then started his Serie A tenure with Napoli in spectacular fashion, scoring a controversial goal against Fiorentina after just seven minutes, with replays showing the ball hardly crossing the line.
Cavani also scored on his home debut against Bari before adding a late winner against Sampdoria , meaning he had scored in his first four competitive matches with Napoli.
On 26 September, Cavani came on as a late replacement with 30 minutes left in a game against Cesena which Napoli were losing 1—0.
After assisting the equalizing goal, he went on to score two more, with the scoreline finishing at 4—1. That meant Cavani shared the lead as top scorer in the league alongside Internazionale 's Samuel Eto'o. In the first match, which was held on Romanian soil, he had scored an equalizing goal in the 97th minute.
On 9 January , Cavani scored a hat-trick during a 3—0 win over Juventus , the third goal coming by way of a scorpion kick. On 20 March, Cavani scored another brace against Cagliari in a 2—1 win. This win kept them within three points of leaders Milan with eight games left. On 3 April, Cavani scored yet another hat-trick in a 4—3 comeback win over Lazio , having been 2—0 and 3—2 down during the game.
He also became the highest league goalscorer in a single season in Napoli's history, netting 25 goals in Serie A.
He sarcastically applauded the referee after the decision and was handed a two-match ban for the action. Cavani signed a new five-year contract on 19 May, keeping him at Napoli until On 21 December, Cavani netted a brace in Napoli's 6—1 thrashing of Genoa , helping the Azzurri finish strong and end the first half of the season in sixth place.
He also provided the assists for both of Ezequiel Lavezzi's goals that game. Napoli subsequently went on to win this game 3—1. A few days later, he converted a fantastic counter-attack against Siena to book Napoli a place in the Coppa Italia final.
On 21 April, he celebrated his th career league appearance by scoring in a 2—0 win against Novara.
I just think about Napoli. Referee Nicolas Rainville booked him for this, and sent him off for dissent after Cavani complained about it. He always celebrates the same way.
The match ended in a 1—1 draw. The result saw PSG break the record for the most goals scored by a club in the group stages of the Champions League, with Cavani finished the tournament as top scorer with seven goals in nine games, helping Uruguay to finish in third place, thereby earning them a place in the FIFA U World Cup.
He scored from his own area on the counterattack from a corner. He started the first two group games, but a knee injury in the second game against Chile ruled him out until the final. Although Cavani scored his spot kick, Uruguay lost; he was named man of the match for his performance.
Uruguay, however, eventually lost 3—1. In the quarter-finals against the hosts at the Estadio Nacional , Cavani was sent off for two bookings: the first for a foul on Arturo Vidal , the second for flicking at Gonzalo Jara 's face after Jara had poked him in the buttocks.
The incident received almost immediate and prominent international coverage from newspapers and the internet, mostly in defense of Cavani.
Massive coverage included articles, columns, blogs, memes and cartoons. Press in Australia drew comparisons to what the press referred to as " Hopoate ", comparing it to a similar infamous onfield anus-poking incident from rugby. He scored in the 2—0 semi-final win over the Czech Republic , and in the final he scored the only goal against Wales , his th cap.
Although Cavani was able to convert his spot-kick, Peru won the shoot-out 5—4, which saw Uruguay eliminated from the competition.
