Luis Suarez is once again making the headlines for all the wrong reasons after being accused of diving in a World Cup qualifier with Peru on Friday that Uruguay won 2-1 edging a step closer to next summer’s World Cup.
Sergio Markarian the Peruvian national team coach was furious with referee Patricio Loustau after he showed defender Victor Yotun a straight red card after the player tried to pull Suarez up off the pitch following a theatrical dive from a soft tackle just minutes after he had done the same thing in the box in order to be awarded a penalty.
Marakarian told reporters: “I’ll do my best to make sure this referee does not go to the World Cup because I’m not ashamed to say it was totally decisive [in the result].
While you might say that Liverpool’s controversial striker cost Peru the match at home in the Estadio Nacional de Lima, there was no denying that his second goal was pure class.
Have a look at the video below for both the dives and the goals in what was a very heated match.
