The controversial Luis Suarez is never one to be out of the headlines for long - This time it is for rubbing Peru's national side up the wrong way.

The Liverpool forward struck a penalty and second-half beauty to help his side in a 2-1 victory against Peru.

Suarez is now the subject of Internet memes in Peru, where he is being blamed for going down too easily, which lead to the penalty that put the Uruguayans ahead.

Suárez flung himself to the ground in the Peru penalty area under minimal contact from Christian Ramos to earn a penalty for his side.

Four minutes later Peruvian left back Yotun Flores was sent off for violent conduct following trying to tackle the Kop favourite from behind in first-half stoppage time.

Peru's defeat at the hands of Suarez has virtually ended any realistic chances that they had of qualifying for next summer's World Cup in Brazil.
