What happened between Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani during Uruguay vs Bolivia


The Edinson Cavani and Neymar saga is well and truly over at Paris Saint-Germain.

The two superstars embarrassed themselves by arguing over who would take a free-kick and a penalty during PSG’s victory over Lyon last month.

While we’ve seen arguments like that before, it was what reportedly happened afterward that caused the storm.

It was claimed the pair clashed in the dressing room and had to separated by Thiago Silva. It was then suggested Neymar demanded that the club sell Cavani either in January or next summer.


However, in recent weeks, the issue appears to have been resolved.

Neymar and Cavani have been seen hugging during recent matches and Cavani even allowed Neymar to take a penalty during their 6-2 win against Bordeaux.


The two PSG stars went off with their countries in this international break and both helped secure qualification for the Russia World Cup.

Neymar’s Brazil had already topped the standings with ease, while Cavani’s Uruguay finished in second, 10 points behind them.

But during Uruguay's 4-2 victory over Bolivia in their final qualifying match, Cavani appeared to have another squabble with a teammate.

This time, it was Luis Suarez.


We’re not quite sure why the Barcelona striker and Cavani were arguing but they appeared to be in a heated debate about something during the match. It was possibly due to Suarez having a shot that was saved by the goalkeeper, rather than square it to Cavani.

What followed was a lot of finger pointed and gesticulating.

Then, when Suarez scored later on, Cavani appeared to walk back towards the halfway line rather than celebrate with his compatriot.

Watch: Suarez and Cavani have an argument

Take a look:

Of course, we don’t know the seriousness of the argument and it was probably just an ordinary squabble that happens every game.

Nevertheless, it’s another example of Cavani’s fiery temperament and he clearly doesn’t mind taking on his teammates if he feels they’re in the wrong.

To be fair, Suarez and Cavani are two of the best strikers in world football and they’ve reached the top of the sport by having the winning mentality to succeed.

It’s probably something that we should admire, rather than criticise.
