Edinson Cavani is hot stuff.
He’s also really, really nice.
The soccer star who plays with Paris St Germain was at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Thursday for a team photo shoot.
The guys will play the 2017 International Champions Cup next week at Hard Rock Stadium against Italian league champion Juventus. The July 26 exhibition match is set to start at 8:30 p.m.
The most anticipated match of the International Champions Cup, El Clasico, will take place at Hard Rock Stadium on July 29 with Real Madrid facing off against FC Barcelona.
Cavani is known for his ability to score goals and his handsome looks.
The long haired Uruguayan is definitely one of the standouts at Paris Saint-Germain, one of Europe’s top soccer clubs and winners of three domestic trophies.
He was very happy to be in Miami, training at Barry University, despite the massive humidity.
“We are practicing a lot outside,” said Cavani. “We’re used to being in the heat more or less, but yes, it’s intense here.”
The athletes do have down time, however.
“The most important is that we are ready,” said the 30-year-old, “but obviously we take some time for ourselves to rest and relax.”
While he is here, the sometime model is also shooting a campaign with Hugo Boss.
The French club opened a pop-up store called “PSG Residence” at Wynwell gym (20 NE 27th St.), where fans can buy PSG Miami branded clothing and accessories and sports equipment. There will also be a silent auction of team memorabilia at Fabien Castanier Gallery and shopping ops for limited edition PSG x Nike sneakers at Shoe Gallery
If he weren’t an international soccer stud, what career would he pursue?
“I love animals and nature,” said Cavani. “So maybe something in those fields.”
