International Friendlies

Oman 0-3 Uruguay

Luis Suarez
Luis Suarez has now scored 43 goals for Uruguay

Ex-Liverpool striker Luis Suarez scored his first Uruguay goals since the World Cup finals and his suspension for biting in a 3-0 friendly win over Oman.

Suarez, 27, is serving a nine-match international ban from competitive games after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini, but can play in friendlies.

The Uruguayan netted twice in nine second-half minutes before Jonathan Rodriguez added a third goal late on.

Suarez could make his Barcelona debut against Real Madrid on 25 October.

World Cup moments: Suarez bites Chiellini

He had last scored for his country when he grabbed both goals in their 2-1 win over England in the World Cup in Brazil on 19 June.

Suarez helped Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 five days later but bit defender Chiellini's shoulder during the match and was later banned for four months from all football activity.

An appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in August revised the terms of his ban, meaning he could play in friendly games for club and country.

However, he will not play for Uruguay in the 2015 Copa America tournament and will not be able to play a competitive Uruguay game until during their qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup.

The striker, who moved to Barcelona from Liverpool for £75m in July, has now scored 43 goals for his country.
