Luis Suarez equals Hernan Crespo record with brilliant goal

Luis Suarez is used to scoring goals for fun.

The Barcelona star hit a ridiculous 48 goals for his club last season and he looks on course to keep that kind of record up this campaign.

Currently, on international duty with Uruguay, the former Liverpool man actually had a bit of a scare prior to the game with Colombia after clashing with Diego Godin having gone in goal in training - we're not sure why either.

Thankfully for Uruguay, it was nothing too serious and he wasn't seriously hurt, a phrase used all too often when describing Suarez rolling around in agony.

For all his faults, though, he produces some fine goals too. His latest moment of magic came last night against Colombia when he scored a lovely strike from a hugely difficult angle.

Take a look here:

It sounds like the commentator rather enjoyed that - he's almost given the famous Iceland commentator a run for his money.

All of Suarez' goals are significant because they add to his ever-increasing tally for Uruguay, but this one was particularly special as he equalled yet another record.


The 29-year-old is now tied with Hernan Crespo as the all-time top scorer in South American World Cup qualifying, this being his 19th goal.

It's no wonder the striker is so invaluable to Uruguay, as he'll undoubtedly go on to be even more prolific than Crespo, who was Argentina's main man for around a decade.

This was also the maverick's 47th international goal.

Ultimately, though, Suarez's impressive strike wasn't enough on the night, as Uruguay couldn't capitalise on the pressure, the game ending 2-2.
