Video: PSG’s Edinson Cavani produces horror miss for Uruguay in crucial Copa America clash

PSG superstar Edinson Cavani had a moment to forget for Uruguay tonight, the usually prolific striker produced a horrific miss against Peru in today’s Copa America clash.

In the 23rd minute of tonight’s Copa America quarter-final, Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez showed off his talents by dazzling Peru’s defenders with some lovely skill before firing a shot on goal, the ex-Liverpool star’s effort was saved and Cavani followed up with a rebound.

Despite being less than five yards out the 32-year-old attacker somehow managed to blaze the ball over the crossbar, Cavani can be let off slightly for his horrendous miss because he was in fact in a offside position.
