– Is not what was expected –
“It was a tie, but we created more opportunities. We’re leaving with a bit of a bitter feeling”, said ‘Pistolero’ Luis Suarez after the Group C match at Arena Do Gremio in Porto Alegre (south) in front of some 40.000 spectators, most of them Uruguayans.
“They pushed us well, they didn’t let us play the way we wanted to. But we have to correct mistakes that were made and celebrate the positive things that were done”, added the Barça player.
