Liverpool’s Luis Suarez won the Copa America tonight,beating Paraguay by 3 goals to nil.
It was Suarez himself who opened the scoring with a deflected goal on 11mins and our Anfield hero was a constant threat to the Paraguyan defence.
He set up Diego Forlan for the second with a nicely weighted headed pass for the Athletico Madrid striker to slam home on 41 mins.
Uraguay were much the stronger side throughout the game and the game was put beyond doubt with Forlan’s second on 89mins.
It was Uraguay’s first win of the Copa since 1995.
Indeed, Suarez was named Player of the Tournament with his 4 goals and his overall displays earning him a deserved award.
So ‘El Pistolero’ will now take a well-earned break from football,
at £22.5 million, we have got ourselves a diamond.
“Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple.”
