 Suarez Help Uruguay Rout Mexico

 
It was a Luis Suarez masterclass as the Barcelona star scored twice and set up another to inspire Uruguay’s crushing 4-1 win over Mexico in Houston.

In an international friendly between the World Cup quarter-finalists and last-16 participants, Uruguay came out on top thanks to all-time leading scorer Suarez’s first-half brace on Friday.

Suarez scored a free-kick and converted a ‘panenka’ penalty at NRG Stadium, where Jose Gimenez’s 22nd-minute opener was cancelled out by Mexico’s Raul Jimenez spot-kick within two minutes.

Gaston Pereiro sealed the rout for Uruguay – who were eliminated by eventual champions France in the World Cup quarters – after Suarez turned provider in sensational fashion 15 minutes into the second half, while Jimenez had a penalty saved by Fernando Muslera during the closing stages.
