He missed it!  Luis Suarez missed the penalty

Luis Suarez scored his first goal this Friday with the shirt of Nationalafter his return to the club this week, to make it 3-0 against Rentistas in the match played this Friday, in the Gran Parque Central, for the second date of the Closing tournament of Uruguayan soccer.

La Celeste’s all-time top scorer, with 68, advanced with a header, after a corner kick executed by Brian Ocampo, to score the third goal of the match, after having entered at the beginning of the second half, instead of Franco Fagúndez. They all hugged him, moved.

A crowd filled the stadium, although a curious fact occurred. When he scored the goal, Suárez made the classic gesture of celebration and sought the complicity of his wife, sofia balby. However, distracted by another topic, she just missed the highlight. After a while, she greeted everyone, laughed and even got emotional.

The last goal of the Pistolero playing for the Bag had been on June 25, 2006, in front of Rochain a match that ended 2-0 in favor of Nacional and gave him the 2005-2006 Uruguayan Championship title, before starting his career in Europe.

El Bolso had advanced on the scoreboard in the first half, with goals from José Luis Rodríguez at 3 minutes and Juan Ignacio Ramírez at 42, so the Pistolero entered a match that his team faced comfortably, unlike what that happened in the week, when Nacional lost at home by 1 to 0 against Goianiense.

Suárez was very participative, going down to build play with the midfielders and fighting many balls. The Rentistas goalkeeper, Lucas Machado, drowned out two clear shouts of goal: he saved a penalty (no less and in great reaction) and towards the end he was stopped by a spectacular volley that went into the left corner.

This was his second game since he returned to Uruguay last Sunday to wear the jersey of his first club, in which he made his professional debut 17 years ago. On Tuesday, with just one day of training with the main squad, he played the last 20 minutes of the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana quarterfinal against Atlético Goianiense, in which Nacional was able to tie, but lacked the final stitch .

This Friday’s result gives El Bolso its first 3 points in the Clausura tournament, after losing on the first date against Deportivo Maldonado 2-1. The striker, who was close to River, is preparing to compete with the national team in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
