Deschamps: Suarez was the 'difference'

France manager Didier Deschamps has hailed Liverpool striker Luis Suarez as the 'difference' in his side's 1-0 loss to Uruguay.

• Int friendly wrap-up

Les Bleus travelled to Montevideo for the friendly against the South American opponents but received no hospitality as Suarez scored the only goal of the game.

And Deschamps said the second-half substitute introduction was the catalyst that turned the advantage to Uruguay's benefit.

"We had opportunities in the first half to take the lead but then they brought on a player like Suarez," he said to TF1 after the match.

"That changed things a lot. Even though he changed things and they some created chances, we kept up our levels of effort. After the goal they slowed the game down but we still had the opportunity to equalise.

"There were a lot of changes made on both sides. It was a pretty even game all things told and one moment from Suarez made the difference. "
