Barcelona star Luis Suarez has scored twice for Uruguay against Oman this afternoon, despite being banned from all football-related activity until later this month.
Suarez was allowed to feature in the friendly because it wasn't classed as a competitive fixture, making the most of that loophole to bag a brace ahead of a potential debut for his new club in El Clasico against Real Madrid on October 26.
Second-half brace worth watching
Barca's new £75m man was relatively quiet in the opening half of his second friendly in four days, primarily because Uruguay's supply line was almost non-existent despite the relatively weak standard of opposition.
When called upon though the ex-Liverpool forward showed his predatory instincts are still very much intact, breaking the deadlock after 57 minutes with a scuffed finish bobbled home from close range after meeting an angled chip over the top.
That strike, which you can watch by clicking HERE, was followed nine minutes later by a second trademark finish which oozed class.
Suarez burst through a static defence with pace and power before lifting a delicate chip over the onrushing goalkeeper, who was caught in no man's land by a very clever finish from one of the world's most potent predators.
Barca fans have been served a further reminder that Suarez is ready to jump straight back into competitive action when called upon, so expect El Clasico to have yet another top star ahead of world football's most anticipated club debut before October draws to a close.
