Neymar and Luis Suarez may well make up one of the most incredible attacking lines the world has ever witnessed, but they were on opposite sides as Brazil took on Uruguay on Friday. 

Enigmatic striker Suarez, of course, was playing in his first game for his country after missing a full 640 days of international action. 

As we all know by now, the Barcelona forward was handed a lengthy suspension after biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup.

In fairness to Suarez, he's rebuilt his reputation over the last couple of years and once again reminded us all of his capabilities during the South American World Cup qualifying clash. 

Goals from Douglas Costa and Renato Augusto had put the Seleção firmly in control of proceedings, but PSG forward Edinson Cavani cut the lead in half before the break.

And you can probably guess who struck home the equaliser. Yes, Suarez's return to action paid dividends for Uruguay as he secured his country a late point. You can see the goal by clicking here

Both sides are going well in their qualifying group for the 2018 World Cup - Uruguay currently sit in second place, while Brazil are just one position behind them in third. 

But, forget about all of that, it was an incident before the game that has come to prominence this morning.

Ahead of the contest, Suarez and Neymar began to interact with each other and it led to the latter giving the former a cheeky poke. It's safe to say that it was all rather comical and thankfully Suarez didn't bite back...
