Man Utd veteran Cavani reveals Uruguay retirement plans

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani says next year's World Cup will be his final appearances with Uruguay.

Cavani has stated he plans to retire from international duty following the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

He said, "Honestly, that's what I'm thinking. I believe every human being's life is based on objectives, on desires you want to achieve, on arriving at certain goals.

"From a football perspective my aim at the national team level, and in general, is to go to the World Cup in Qatar and from there to step aside and dedicate myself to my family, my people, my things.

"I think this is the last dance."
