Luis Suarez must know it can be no fun being a goalkeeper - he puts enough past them, after all.
The Barcelona superstar plays with such a swagger that perhaps Uruguay boss Óscar Tabárez thought it was about time he got a taste of his own medicine.
It's fair to say Suarez doesn't need too much practice up front, so his team-mates stuck him in goal for their training session in the run-up to the Colombia game, as per Goal.com.

The former Liverpool man possesses such talent that you might have thought he'd excel wherever you put him on the pitch, but that definitely wasn't the case.
This is a man who is no stranger to using his hands in the box, either, as Ghana fans who so painfully remember one infuriating incident in the 2010 World Cup will testify.
On this occasion, it wasn't quite so easy for Suarez, though at least he didn't get sent off for his shot-stopping this time.
Suarez gets battered
In fact, he got absolutely clattered by Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin, who was probably happy to be given the chance to exact some sweet revenge on a striker who has tormented La Liga for so long. Godin might have crashed to the floor with him, but it was probably worth it.
Now, Suarez has a tendency to go down a little easily at times. Even the slightest breezes have been known to send the forward flying, but he did look like he'd actually been hurt here.
Whether this was a special take from the Luis Suarez school of play-acting we'll never know, but it doesn't seem like he'll be in a hurry to get between the sticks again.
Tabárez might want to think a little more carefully too, as it's a good job the 29-year-old wasn't too badly hurt - or he'd have had some serious questions from Barcelona to answer.
