It may have been only a matter of hours since the greatest football-based u-turn since Papiss Cisse decided Wonga were actually a pretty good bunch of lads despite the fact they stand for everything his religion opposes - but Luis Suarez evidently isn't letting his off-pitch woes affect his performances.
The Liverpool man marched straight to The Guardian red-cheeked and foaming at the mouth last week to lay down his demands to Liverpool - chief of which being that they grant him a move to Arsenal.
Now, somewhat bafflingly, he is reportedly ready to sign a contract extension at Anfield after being persuaded to stay by the Liverpool fans. And if you believe that you'll believe anything.
Putting the speculation over his future to one side for long enough to get on the pitch and away from the reporters he is likely to tell in a few hours that he'll never play for Liverpool again, the scurrying forward played a blinder in his country's friendly win over Japan.
Not only did he tee up former Manchester United ace Diego Forlan for the first goal of the game he later got on the scoresheet himself.
Manchester United ace Shinji Kagawa made it 3-1 briefly before Alvaro Gonzalez re-established Uruguay's three-goal cushion.
Keisuke Honda then scored an absolute beauty of a free-kick to make it 4-2 and round off the scoring in a remarkable game.
So all in all a good day for Suarez to let his feet do the talking. It's probably best he keeps it that way for, oh I don't know, the rest of his career.
