'Suarez Does Not Bite Them, He Swallows Them'

MOST COMMENTED

So came the headline from Uruguayan daily Ovacion, referring to Luis Suarez’s infamous bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in 2013. The paper went on to claim that the Liverpool striker’s two-goals in the 2-1 win against England on Wednesday was revenge for all the criticism he’d received in the British press.

"As all Uruguayans dreamed, Luis Suarez returned just in time against England, and was the hero," the Ovacion report said, adding: "The pistolero got revenge for so much criticism received from the English by leaving them on the brink of elimination. It is true that England was the country which sheltered him and brought him to be one of the best forwards in the world (and why not the best?), but it was also the place which has systematically mistreated him."

Meanwhile, across the Rio de la Plata in Buenos Aires, sports daily Ole ran with the headline “The Incredible Suarez,” and said a shocked England still was not sure how it suffered a second consecutive defeat: "England, another to have been hit with a frying pan at this World Cup, are saying goodbye," the paper added. "They once invented soccer, but here they were bewildered again. Suarez, and Uruguay, whacked them." The result lifted Uruguay to third place in Group D, level on points with Costa Rica in first and Italy in second, but with an inferior goal differential. England is last with zero points and could be headed home if Italy fails to beat Costa Rica on Thursday.
