Cavani shows his class at last

Chelsea transfer target, Edinson Cavani was silent during the group games against World champions, Spain and Champions of Africa, Nigeria against whom he was marked out of the game by Chelsea-owned 19 year-old Nigerian, Kenneth Omeruo. He was then unceremoniously dropped against everyone's favourite team, Tahiti. 

Cavani silenced critics with his performance against Brazil. His work rate during the match was incredible and Thiago Silva and David Luiz struggled to contain hIM.
He thoroughly deserved his goal, some lackadaisical defending by Brazil and Cavani pounced on the ball with his left foot straight into bottom corner, a real striker's goal.
 
Can we then say Omeruo is better than Luiz?
Football is sometimes like that. That's not to say Omeruo isn't quality, he's an extremely talented lad. 

David Luiz, Oscar and Brazil are into the final. Luiz had a bad night - a penalty away too -while Oscar had a quiet evening. It wasn't just them, the whole Brazil squad was in shambles. Mr Neymar shot the ball less and dived more. Congratulations to Luiz and Oscar! 
 

Edinson, you are not a Chelsea player, not yet at least. Well done!
People can now keep quiet about Chelsea being foolish to be scrambling for your signature.
