'Extraordinary' Suarez shines for Uruguay


Liverpool striker Luis Suarez took the plaudits of his national team coach after scoring four goals in a World Cup qualifier.

The Uruguayan hitman scored all the goals in a 4-0 victory over Chile on Friday night, producing some spectacular finishing to match an impressive all-round display.

It will come as little surprise to Reds fans, who have taken to Suarez's style of play quickly at Anfield, and Oscar Tarabez is staggered that teams still aren't fully aware of the player's remarkable talents.

"I don't understand how people can still be surprised by Suarez. This kid is achieving incredible things and it is exciting to watch him play," said Tabarez post-match.

"I remember he had a few problems when he first started at Nacional, then he exploded in Holland with Groningen and Ajax. He became captain in Amsterdam and now is starring for Liverpool. He's extraordinary."

The victory leaves Uruguay top of the South American qualifying table on seven points, ahead of Argentina, Colombia and Paraguay after two wins and a draw in their opening three matches.

And Kenny Dalglish will be hoping his £24 million January signing can replicate the international form on his return to Merseyside, with Liverpool facing a trip to Stamford Bridge for a clash against Chelsea next Sunday.
