The Uruguay trainer was finally able to deliver some good news, saying that Edinson Cavani was fit to play in the Copa America final. The striker injured himself just minutes into Uruguay's second match of the tournament and has been absent since being taken off at halftime of that match. Now he is ready to go for Uruguay, giving the favorites just another weapon to go to with the tournament on the line.
Cavani may have declared himself fit to play, but he will not be starting in the final. Manager Oscar Tabarez has opted to stick with the 4-4-2 formation that got Uruguay got to the final with Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez up top instead of the 4-3-3 with Cavani in the team.
Even though he is not starting though, Cavani can make a huge impact coming off the bench. He is far superior to any option Paraguay has off the bench. Heck, he's far superior to any option Paraguay has starting and if Paraguay play defensive, negative football just trying to manage a scoreless draw then win it in penalties, Cavani could be the man to come off the bench and break the deadlock.
