Suarez Consoles Gerrard

MOST COMMENTED

After leading Uruguay to victory with two goals against England on Thursday, Luis Suarez’s thoughts immediately turned to Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard, whose mistimed backward header landed conveniently at the Uruguayan’s feet, allowing him to neatly dispatch what would prove to be the game winner with just five minutes left. While the 2-1 victory resurrected Uruguay’s hopes of reaching the round of 16, it almost certainly marked the deal knell for Roy Hodgson’s England, which needs a remarkable set of circumstances to unfold in order to qualify out of Group D.

After the game, Suarez told LiverpoolFC.com that he felt for Gerrard and his Liverpool teammates. "This is an unlucky moment for him. I don't like it when he hurts like this," said Suarez, who bagged 31 goals for Liverpool in the Premier League last season. "I said: 'Keep going, forget this game, you're one of the best.' He's the best player I've played with."

Reflecting on his own performance, the 27-year-old, who came back from knee surgery after missing Uruguay’s opener, said: "It has been like a dream. It is something I have dreamt about very often. It was one of the best games I've played. It's an amazing moment for me. Maybe a few days ago I thought this wouldn't be possible."
