Edinson Cavani has scored Napoli's 1000th goal and he has been banned for his bad celebration. All it took him were 25 matches to have his name carved into the annals of the club. When he scored a penalty against Roma, Edinson Cavani had hit Napoli's 1,000th away goal. It was a present he had given himself to celebrate his 24th birthday on St Valentine's Day. The date is only of interest to those who love statistics, because the Uruguayan's contribution to the club is impossible to calculate. He is the new king of Naples, undisputed idol of the supporters. His talent has brought the joy of seeing the club up there, challenging for the title in the name of the whole city. The night in the Olimpico Stadium just showed us how good he really is and how devastating he can be in the last 16 metres. He is well and truly a phenomenon and half the world is envious of Aurelio De Laurentiis. But Cavani's day of glory was clouded over by the Lavezzi's 3-match ban for spitting at Rosi on Saturday in Rome. The club is set to appeal but it's a certainty that the Pocho will miss the big match against AC Milan coming up at the Meazza Stadium soon.
