Suárez lining up for Uruguay in 2014

Luis Suárez is a Uruguayan professional footballer who represents the Uruguay national football team as a striker. He made his debut for his country in a 3–1 friendly victory over Colombia in Cúcuta in January 2007.[1] His first goal came in his third appearance for Uruguay, scoring the opening goal in a 5–0 victory in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification match against the same opposition in October 2007. Suárez became his country's top scorer at the age of 26 when he scored twice against Tahiti in a 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup group match in June 2013.[2] Suárez scored eleven goals during Uruguay's qualification campaign for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, making him joint top scorer with Robin van Persie during qualification.[3] Following an incident in which he was adjudged to have bitten Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during the finals, Suárez was banned for nine international games and did not feature for Uruguay in 2015.[4] His goal in the 1–0 victory over Saudi Arabia in the group stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup made Suárez the only Uruguayan to score in three World Cup final tournaments.[5]

As of September 2018, Suárez has scored three or more goals (a hat-trick) on two occasions. He scored three times against Indonesia in a 7–1 friendly win in October 2010, and all four goals in a 4–0 victory in a 2014 World Cup qualification game against Chile in November 2011. He has scored more goals in World Cup qualifiers than in any other format with 21, followed by 20 in friendlies. Suárez has scored seven times in World Cup finals, four times in the Copa América and three times in the FIFA Confederations Cup. He has scored more times (five) against Peru, Bolivia and Chile than any other opponent. Nineteen of his goals have been scored at the Estadio Centenario, the remainder coming at overseas venues. Suárez's most recent goals came on 7 September 2018 when he scored twice in a 4–1 friendly victory over Mexico played in Houston. He has scored 55 international goals in 104 appearances.[1]

Note: In a World Cup qualifier on 10 June 2012 where Uruguay defeated Peru 4–2, FIFA's match summary lists Suárez as the scorer of the opening goal. FIFA has also published reports where they credit the goal to Sebastián Coates.[47][48] Other notable sources also credit the goal to Coates.[49] Suárez himself also insisted that Coates scored the goal,[1] therefore it is not listed in his tally above.
