Napoli star Cavani shrugs off failed spotkick

Napoli star Edinson Cavani shrugged off his failed spotkick in their 2-2 draw against Udinese.

Cavani has a very poor record from penalties and saw his central spot-kick saved by Samir Handanovic.

He said: "If I tried to lift the penalty, then Handanovic would've got it anyway. That's what goalkeepers are there for and compliments to him for realising that's what I wanted to do."
