Luis Suarez appeals for handball when goalkeeper saves and gestures for Gonzalo Jara to be booked for

BIZARRE

Uruguay beat Chile in the Copa America group game, but the Barcelona man was once again making headlines for his controversial behaviour

Luis Suarez was up to his old tricks during Uruguay’s Copa America Group C win over Chile.

The Barcelona forward left fans both amused and confused when he appealed for a handball after rounding Chile’s Gabriel Arias, only for the goalkeeper to knock it out for a corner.

Clearly lost in the moment and showing his desire to win, he seemed to forget Arias’ job involves using his hands, Suarez instead appealed to the referee for a penalty.

While that was truly bizarre, Suarez was not done yet and took his audacious behaviour to another level.

In the second half, a supporter ran onto the pitch sporting a rucksack with an Argentina flag and the word ‘Kun’ on it, the nickname of Manchester City star Sergio Aguero.

Gonzalo Jara, the former West Brom defender, tripped the pitch invader and allowed security to apprehend him.

Suarez then ran towards the referee, waving his hand as if to brandish a card, urging for Jara to either be booked or sent off.

Furious Chile players then surround the official and the crowd began booing.

Uruguay ended the night as winners thanks to Edinson Cavani’s 82nd minute goal and they will now face Peru in the Copa America quarter-finals on Saturday, while Chile face unbeaten Colombia.

Although a controversial game, it pales in comparison to the game between the teams in the same competition four years ago.

In 2015, Cavani was sent off in Uruguay’s 1-0 defeat to Chile in the last eight when he slapped Jara for poking a finger up his backside.

Jara was then banned for three games, which ruled him out of the tournament his side ended up winning.

He was also fined $7,500 (£4,780), with Cavani being suspended for two World Cup qualifiers.
