ormer Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has blasted FIFA after Uruguay were eliminated from the World Cup.
Two goals from Giorgian De Arrascaeta secured the South American nation a 2-0 win over Ghana at the Al Janoub Stadium, but South Korea 2-1 comeback victory over Portugal left both teams tied on four points and the same goal difference, but Uruguay had scored two fewer goals – so were eliminated.
Suarez explained to TeleDoce after the game when asked to sum up his emotions: “I feel sadness and disappointment. My son is also leaving the stadium with the image of that sadness, so for a father it is difficult, but he has to face the situation that he has.”
The striker then went on to criticise the referee’s decision not to award Uruguay a late penalty.
Suarez added: “I see a penalty for Cavani because he is cut off by the defender and he puts his body in front of him. Darwin’s is very clear too. They are not excuses, but incredible penalties are being awarded in this World Cup. And there is the committee of referees and FIFA, and they have to try to explain themselves better, at least.”
