Luis Suarez gloats after Uruguay win

Luis Suarez could not help but gloat after inspiring Uruguay to a crucial World Cup victory at the expense of England.

Having undergone a knee operation last month, there had been concerns over the 27-year-old's participation in Brazil -- talk that was fuelled by the fact he was not deemed fit enough to feature in the embarrassing defeat to Costa Rica on Saturday.

However, Suarez returned against England and how, netting either side of Wayne Rooney's first World Cup goal to help Oscar Tabarez's side to a vital 2-1 win in Sao Paulo.

Defeat would have left them facing the prospect of World Cup elimination, but the result at the Arena Corinthians means it is England teetering over the precipice.

A draw between Italy and Costa Rica on Friday would confirm the Three Lions' exit, with Suarez unable to stop himself crowing about the result.

"It was one of the best games I've played," he said. "It's an amazing moment for me. Maybe a few days ago I thought this wouldn't be possible.

"Before the game too many people in England laughed about my attitude over the last few years. This is a very good time for me. I want to see what they think now."

Suarez was held aloft by his teammates at the final whistle, admitting afterward this was a moment he had dreamt of.

Luis Suarez scored twice in what he called 'one of the best games I've played.'

That said, despite the elation of victory, he felt the pain of Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard.

His slip is seen as one of the key reasons the Reds' title charge came to an end, while his unfortunate header back to goal allowed Suarez to score the winning goal.

"I told him to keep going," Suarez said. "He's the best player I've played with on the pitch.

"This is an unlucky moment for him. I don't like it when he hurts like this. I said 'Keep going, forget this game, you're one of the best.'"
