Luis Suarez gave a glimpse of what Liverpool fans can look forward to once again next season, hitting the goal trail on the international stage after an impressive end to the season at Anfield. 

The Uruguay striker equalised for his nation on the stroke of half time, cancelling out Paolo Guerrero's opener for Peru in their opening clash of the Copa America.. 

"Being a forward, it's nice to score, but it's not satisfying to give everything and not win," said the 24-year-old former Ajax forward. 

"We don't look for excuses. We had some chances. Perhaps they were more clear-cut in the second half, but we don't have to look for excuses." 

Suarez is set to start again for Uruguay on Friday in the nation's second Group C match, against Chile. 

Elsewhere in the Copa America, and another Liverpool star featured for Brazil in their opening 0-0 draw against Venezuela on Sunday night. 


Lucas Leiva acknowledged that the samba stars need to improve if they are to claim a ninth Copa title, but Lucas is confident that Mano Menezes's side have what it takes to improve and take the title. 

"We had control of the match for the most part, we did not let them create a lot of chances. We had the ball that the defender cleared off the line and Pato's shot against the post. In the second half, we committed more mistakes," he said post-match. 

"Now, we have to keep on working in the next matches to play with ball possession and create more chances."
