Luis Suarez Grabs Opponent's Balls In The Most Luis Suarez Moment Ever
Luis Suarez loves playing the pantomime villain, doesn't he?
Another World Cup rolls around, another classic Suarez moment occurs. He just can't get enough.
This time the Suarez moment occurred during a lacklustre game between Egypt and Uruguay in Group A of the World Cup.
Defender José Giménez rose the highest in the 90th minute and headed the South Americans ahead.
After all their great defending, it was a dagger to the heart of the Egyptians, and it showed in Mohamed Salah's face.

Egypt were attempting to find an equaliser during the five minutes of injury-time, and during this period Suarez decided to get up to his old tricks.

He dived to the floor after being delicately touched on the back. This was before, in a WWE-like oversell, he jumped back up and then grabbed Egypt's Ahmed Hegazi by the knackers - before going to ground once again.
The incident is so hilarious and brilliantly typical of Suarez that it's been made into a very re-watchable GIF.

This isn't the first time the Barcelona star has pulled off some crazy antics at a World Cup.
In the 2010 Word Cup against Ghana, he saved the ball going over the line with hands. He was red-carded but the African side missed their retrospective penalty and were knocked out, Suarez seen manically celebrating afterwards.
And during the 2014 World Cup, he was sent off and banned from playing football across all competitions for nine months after biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini. It was the third instance of the attacker biting another player on the pitch.
We wonder what the World Cup 2022 brings.
You keep being you, Suarez. We'll just stand and watch.
