International football has rolled around with UEFA Nation League games being played not to mention high-profile friendlies in the form of Brazil vs. Uruguay.

The five-time World Cup winners faced their South American counterparts in London at Arsenal's Emirates, and it was a feisty encounter.

Eight players were booked including Cavani who clattered Neymar in the second-half.

The Uruguayan striker took out Neymar who rolled around in agony, with referee Craig Pawson brandishing a yellow card.

But, following the game, Cavani prevented any rivalry or feud escalating by defending his actions due to the occasion.

"When two South American teams meet, it's always a bit intense," he said.

"I think it was a very good match, and in the end we protested a bit about the penalty.

"But these are things that happen, it's always good to face big teams like Brazil and playing against great rivals like Neymar or the other players that make up this Brazil team."

Of course, Cavani and Neymar have history. The pair have clashed since the Brazilians world record transfer from Barcelona in 2017.

Most notably, engaging in a heated discussion over a PSG penalty.

Brazil, meanwhile, recorded the victory thanks to the man himself. Neymar tucked away a penalty in the 76th minute to secure the win.

PSG resume their 2018/19 campaign against Toulouse next Saturday.

Will there be frosty reunion between Cavani and Neymar upon both men returning to Paris?
