Edinson Cavani denies Wales in China Cup final

Grant SmithMar 27, 2018

Dan Fitch is expecting a low-scoring draw when Wales take on Uruguay in the China Cup final on Monday lunchtime.

Much of the local pre-match attention was focused upon the duel between Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and Barcelona's Luis Suarez lining up in opposing attacks, but Cavani proved the difference maker with his 42nd worldwide goal.

Uruguay faced tougher opposition in their semi-final against the Czech Republic, who they beat 2-0 with goals from Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani.

The 31-year-old scored Uruguay's second in their 2-0 win over the Czech Republic, Luis Suarez scoring the other with his 50th worldwide goal.

In Giggs' debut, Wales ran out as 6-0 winners over the hosts China, with the former Manchester United winger electing to continue Chris Coleman's tactic of playing with three centre-backs.

Suarez saw his second-minute effort come back off the woodwork before another attempt by the Barcelona forward just after the half-hour mark also hit the post following an under-hit back pass by Wales defender Ashley Williams.

At this year's World Cup, Uruguay will face Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation after kicking off their campaign against Egypt.

Hennessey then pushed over a rasping hit from Cavani, who headed wide from the resulting corner.

- Wales have won one of their 16 matches against South American opponents in their history, a 1-0 win over Brazil in September 1991 under the management of Terry Yorath; they have drawn four and lost 11 of their other matches.

PSG marksman Cavani bagged his landmark goal by converting from close range after Cristian Rodriguez was played in behind with a simple pass over the top, squaring the ball for his teammate to do the rest.
