Suarez Delighted To Match Forlan

Uruguay star Luis Suarez admits that he was ecstatic to match Diego Forlan's scoring record for the national team.

Suarez struck a sublime consolation goal for the South Americans as they went down 2-1 to Spain in their opening game of the Confederations Cup on Sunday.

The Liverpool forward admits that on a personal note, it was an honour for him to reach the same level of a player like Forlan.

"On a personal level it is an honour and a compliment to have reached the same level as Diego [Forlan] in respect of what he has done for la Celeste," the 26-year-old told reporters.

"Having scored the same amount goals as Diego, on a personal level is good, but now what we are focused on is performing in the group and our results in this cup."

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez then had his say on their result, saying that world champions Spain deserved their win.

"Spain was better in the game and fully justified their victory. They caused us much trouble and we did not have the discipline needed," he said.

"In the second half we faced a difficult situation, and the 2-0 looked very bad. I would say that it could have been catastrophic.

"We knew the reality before the match. If Spain thrashed Germany and Italy, why wouldn't they beat Uruguay? They are playing an important tournament which is always a great motivation for a great team."
