Luis Suarez, the captain of Uruguay, has expressed his appreciation for the help his team has received while competing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup being held in Qatar.
Suarez also insisted that despite Uruguay’s 2-0 win over Ghana on Friday, their elimination from the World Cup still hurts a lot.
After defeating Ghana 2-0, Uruguay was eliminated from the World Cup.
They placed third in Group H, where teams like Portugal and South Korea outperformed both Uruguay and Ghana.
Former Barcelona and Liverpool attacker Suarez expressed his relief with his team after the game in an emotional Instagram post.
Saying goodbye to a World Cup hurts a lot, but Suarez added that he and his teammates are at ease knowing that they are leaving everything for their country.
Despite the fact that they don’t respect us, I’m proud to be Uruguayan. Many thanks to all the Uruguayans that helped us around the world!
