Suarez scores twice

Luis Suarez showed he had lost none of his predatory instincts - or his ability to attract controversy - by scoring twice in Uruguay's 2-1 World Cup qualifying win in Peru on Friday night.

The Liverpool striker opened the scoring from the spot after he had been felled by Christian Ramos.

But he was at the centre of a flare-up two minutes later when he was fouled from behind by Josepmir Ballon. Victor Yotun waded in needlessly, suggesting Suarez had gone to ground too easily, and was sent off after a brief melee.

Suarez exacted full revenge after 66 minutes with a wonderful second goal before Schalke winger Jefferson Farfan netted a late consolation with a fine free-kick.
