Luis Suarez praised Darwin Nunez as one of the best strikers globally and drew comparisons with two other forwards after Uruguay’s 3-0 victory over Bolivia in World Cup qualifying.
Uruguay’s brace hero Luis Suarez acknowledged Nunez‘s talent and highlighted similarities with two other strikers. Suarez, the all-time top scorer for Uruguay, now plays a supportive role in the team, and he expressed his commitment to support Nunez in their attacking lineup.
Luis Suarez said: “I have one of the best No. 9s in the world ahead of me, which is Darwin Nunez. We have to take advantage of it and enjoy it.
“He has things from [me], from Edi [Cavani], from [Erling] Haaland, from everyone. It is a mixture of everything; goals, commitment and sacrifice for the team, that must be valued.
“Today I am in another role and I am happy to be here helping the group, what I have to do is contribute.”
Nunez has revealed his adoration for Suarez in the past, recently stating: “Celebrating with Luis is something very nice and special. He is the nine of Uruguay, the one who made history. I always try to follow in his footsteps.
“Luis is very important for this group that we have. He is a player with a lot of experience that he already had a lot in the national team. It’s nice that he is here, that he contributes to the [younger] ones and that we learn from him.”
