Cavani Announces Retirement from International Play Before Copa America Tournament

Edinson Cavani, Uruguay’s second-highest goalscorer, recently announced his retirement from international soccer, closing the chapter on representing his country in the upcoming Copa America.

At 37 years old, Cavani boasts an impressive record of 136 international appearances and 58 goals, second only to Luis Suarez.

His debut in February 2008 marked the beginning of a successful career that included winning the Copa America title in 2011.

Despite his contributions, Cavani has not played for Uruguay since the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where they exited the tournament in the group stage.

In a heartfelt message on social media, Cavani expressed gratitude for his time with the national team and the support he received throughout his career.

While he has countless memories and experiences to share, Cavani is focused on the next chapter of his journey and is grateful for the opportunity to represent his beloved country.

With a mix of emotions, Cavani bid farewell to his fans but assured them that his passion for the game still burns strong.

Uruguay is set to kick off their Copa America campaign against Panama on June 23, with Cavani watching from the sidelines as a new chapter begins.
