Edinson Cavani spoke of his confrontation with Lionel Messi during Uruguay's 2-2 draw with Argentina.

Cavani reportedly challenged Messi to a fight, to which Messi responded "whenever you want."

"It's part of football, Clasicos are like this. The truth is that it was at times a game that had friction, there were challenges and things that are part of football, especially of South American [football]," said Cavani.

Messi also made headlines for a confrontation with Brazil manager Tite last week.
