Luis Suarez gave a vintage Luis Suarez performance in Uruguay’s 2-1 win over Peru on Friday. He dove, he slotted home PKs, he play-acted, he scored a screamer and, most importantly, he led his home nation to a key win over their South American rivals.
Uruguay now have 19 points through 13 matches and are in fifth place in CONMEBOL qualifying with five matches to play. The top four sides make it and the fifth gets a playoff against an Oceania rep. I think I have that right?
