Luis Suarez inspires Uruguay

Luis Suarez showed he had lost none of his predatory instincts - or his ability to attract controversy - by scoring twice in Uruguay's 2-1 World Cup qualifying win in Peru on Friday night.

The Liverpool striker, currently serving a 10-game domestic ban for his bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in the Barclays Premier League clash at Anfield in April, opened the scoring from the spot after he had been felled by Christian Ramos.

But he was at the centre of a flare-up two minutes later when he was fouled from behind by Josepmir Ballon. Victor Yotun waded in needlessly, suggesting Suarez had gone to ground too easily, and was sent off after a brief melee.

Suarez exacted full revenge after 66 minutes with a wonderful second goal before Schalke winger Jefferson Farfan netted a late consolation with a fine free-kick.

The win leaves Uruguay fifth in the Conmebol qualifying section - a place which, should they remain there after the final three rounds, would see them advance to an intercontinental play-off against an Asian nation.

Elsewhere, Colombia defeated Ecuador 1-0 courtesy of a first-half strike by James Rodriguez, while Paraguay thrashed Bolivia 4-0 and Chile downed Venezuela 3-0.
