WATCH: Tearful Cavani pays tribute to Ronaldo

WATCH: Tearful Cavani pays tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo in post-match interview

June 30, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
All heroes do not wear a cape, they say.

The joy of being a national hero was apparently too much to contain for Edinson Cavani after his two strikes proved vital to Uruguay's qualification into the quarter-finals. The night of the 29-year-old forward, however, came to an abrupt end following an injury which forced his substitution in the 74th-minute.

Prior to him being replaced, a moment of sportsmanship was witnessed as Cristiano Ronaldo - who had his team trailing at the time - was seen assisting Cavani off the pitch in a very gentle manner. The moment has seemingly stuck with the Paris Saint-Germain superstar and he was only full of admiration for the Portuguese skipper in his very emotional post-match interview.

"We've played against the best player in the world," Cavani said.

"He's always going to be an idol for me."
