Suarez Stars in Controversial Uruguay Win

Luis Suarez once again dominated headlines after being involved in two controversial incidents that helped Uruguay beat Peru 2-1 in Lima. The Liverpool striker’s brace led the Celeste passed ten-man Peru in a crucial South American World Cup qualifier, cementing its hold on fifth-place in the Conmebol standings.

First, Suarez opened the scoring in the 43rd minute from the penalty spot after drawing the foul. Then, just before halftime, the controversial striker went to ground even more theatrically following minimal contact from Victor Yotun -- a challenge which saw the Peruvian defender given a straight red card. Suarez later sealed the win with a brilliant first-time strike from the edge of the penalty area in the 67th minute. Schalke winger Jefferson Farfan pulled a goal back with a beautiful free-kick in the 84th, but it was not enough.

After the game, Peru’s irate coach Sergio Markarian slammed referee Patricio Loustau for sending off Yotun. "I'll do my best to make this World Cup referee not go because I'm not ashamed to say it was totally decisive,” Markarian said. "What Yotun did was silly but I've seen worse, like elbows or double uncollected simulations that go unpunished."
