Cavani Announces Retirement From International Football

Edinson Cavani has announced his retirement from international football meaning he will not represent his country in this summer’s Copa América in the United States.

Cavani scored 58 goals in 136 appearances for Uruguay and was part of the team that won the 2011 Copa America title. His goal tally for Uruguay is second only to longtime teammate Luis Suárez (68).

The 37-year-old has not played for Uruguay since they exited the 2022 World Cup in the group stage.

“My beloved Celeste, I just want to thank you for every lesson you gave me under your process,” Cavani wrote on social media.

“I won’t take long. Today my words are few but profound. Thanks to every single person who was a part of this road over the years. I was and always will be blessed to have worn this jersey representing what I love most in this world, my country.
