International

Suarez Downs France

Second half substitute and Liverpool striker, Luis Suarez, handed Uruguay a 1-0 win over France in an International friendly at the Estadio Centenario on Wednesday night.

Suarez was only on the pitch for five minutes before the striker found the back of the net with a typical clinical finish from a tight angle on the right side of the box.

While the Uruguayan is uncertain of his future in England, he certainly showed all the passion in the world for his mother country as he came on to rescue the win for the South American side.

France certainly started the brighter of the two teams and had their first chance on goal in the opening minute as Dimitri Payet lashed wide from just outside the box.

Uruguay, though, found their feet and had their first real attempt on goal in the tenth minute as Martín Cáceres met a Diego Forlán cross, but his header went over the bar from ten-yards out.

Neither side really had their shooting boots on as France’s Blaise Matuidi pushed another shot narrowly wide of the post from the edge of the box.

Payet was in the thick of the action again ten minutes before the break, but much like his compatriots on the night, his finish was a poor one as he fired over from just inside the 18-yard area.

The teams entered the half time break all square.

Five minutes after the restart Uruguay managed to take the lead as Maxi Pereira slipped Suarez through on goal with an inch perfect pass and the Liverpool striker made no mistake with a deadly finish from an acute angel, 1-0.

France tried to find their way back into the match, but were unable to as the game took a bit of a scrappy turn as neither team was able to hold onto possession for too long.
