Suarez at the double as Uruguay beat Peru

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez showed that despite his ongoing suspension, he's not forgotten how to find the back of the net.

Suarez will once again dominate the headlines having been at the centre of Uruguay's 2-1 win over Peru last night, scoring both goals to keep Óscar Tabárez's side on track as they bid for World Cup 2014 qualification.

Despite missing out on weekly competitive fixtures for Liverpool since being slapped with a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, Suarez looked sharp and fighting fit.

However, he did little to improve his image - his first goal came from the spot after he was adjudged to have been fouled by Peruvian stopper Victor Yotun, though replays showed the 26-year-old striker made the most of minimal contact.

The Liverpool frontman - who was subject of bids in excess of £40 million from Arsenal throughout the summer - then created more controversy by falling to the ground after minimal contact from Yotun's challenge.

The referee had no hesitation in showing the Peruvian defender a straight red card, much to the dismay of Yotun's teammates.

There was still more to come as Suarez completed his brace by smashing the ball into the roof of the net from the edge of the penalty area.

That second goal meant Suarez became Uruguay's all-time top scorer, while Uruguay hold a three-point gap over sixth-placed Venezuela with a possible play-off for a World Cup position looming against either Jordan or Uzbekistan from Asia if they maintain fifth spot.
