Luis Suarez was left in tears on the substitute bench with his side heading for a World Cup exit


Luis Suarez on the verge of TEARS while on the substitutes bench after Hwang Hee-Chan’s late strike for South Korea against Portugal condemned Uruguay to an early exit despite leading Ghana 2-0 in the other game

Luis Suarez is reduced to tears on the bench for Uruguay following South Korea’s late goal against Portugal, with Hwang Hee-Chan’s strike sending Uruguay out of the group stage. 

Suarez was seen hiding behind his shirt with tears in his eyes as he watched on with his side the latest side to head for a surprising early exit in a week that has seen several high-profile upsets 

The former Liverpool and Barcelona star twice assisted Giorgian de Arrascaeta to put La Celeste 2-1 up against Ghana in their final game in Group H, but it was ultimately not enough to send Uruguay through.

After a 0-0 draw with South Korea in their opening game, and a 2-0 defeat to Portugal, Uruguay were eliminated on the basis of having scored fewer goals. 

His side were 2-0 up against a Ghana side bidding for revenge following their notorious clash in the quarterfinals of South Africa 2010.

Ghana ultimately lost on the night after Asamoah Gyan’s missed penalty after Suarez was sent off for deflecting a shot off the line with his hand, before celebrating from the tunnel as Gyan’s strike crashed into the bar in the final second of the game.

However, rather than sympathise with the legendary forward, fans on Twitter were quick to state their schadenfreude.

One viewer wrote: ‘The fact that Suarez is crying is enough revenge for me. Siato.’

Another added: ‘Seeing Suarez cry makes me happy.’

A third claimed: ‘Feels even sweeter seeing Suarez cry,’ with two laughing emojis.’

And a fourth wrote: ‘Not many better views in world football than seeing Suarez cry.’
