Uruguay draws with Saudi Arabia as Suarez returns after ban

  • Playing his first match for his country after a ban for biting, Luis Suarez set up Uruguay’s lone goal as it drew 1-1 against Saudi Arabia.

    The 27-year-old’s strike hit the post before being diverted for an own goal by Hassan Fallatah.

    The Barcelona forward was banned for four months and nine international matches after he bit an Italian player, Giorgio Chiellini, during the Brazil World Cup. Later, the ban was changed to nine competitive internationals following an appeal.
