Luis Suarez is living up to the reputation of a fierce competitor. The FC Barcelona striker put up a dramatic stunt in his side’s one nil defeat of Chile in the ongoing Copa America football tournament.
Suarez’s strike at goal, in the twenty-second minute of the encounter, was thwarted by Arias in the penalty area. It was, however, strange that the striker called for a penalty kick awarded against the goalkeeper.
