Saurez Scores On Uruguay Return To Deny Brazil Victory

2018 World Cup qualifier 

Result: Brazil 2-2 Uruguay 

Date: 26 March 2016

Venue: Itaipava Arena Pernambuco

Goals from Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez helped Uruguay came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Brazil. 

Dunga named an impressive front three, which included Neymar, Douglas Costa and Willian. While, Luis Suarez made his return to the Uruguayan squad.

Selecao took the lead as early as the minute, as Willian whipped a cross into the box and found Costa, who poked home from close range.

Saurez squandered a chance to level matters for the visitors in the 12th minute, the Barcelona forward was left un-marked at the far post but failed to direct his effort on target.

Uruguay were made to rue that missed opportunity, as Neymar picked out Renato Augusto, who showed enough composure to slot past Muslera from close range in the 26th minute.

However, the visitors reduced the deficit in the 31st minute. Perriera did well to get past Willian, before floating the ball to the far post, where Cavani was on hand to finish first time, 2-1.

Uruguay completed the comeback soon after the halftime break, as Suarez marked his return to the national side with calm finish, after being picked out by Pereira.

Both sides pushed for a winner in the closing stages, with Coutinho forcing Muslera into a fine stop in the 83rd minute with an effort from distance. 

While, Brazil shot-stopper Alisson produced a stunning save to deny Suarez from close range and ensured his side claimed a point.
