Darwin Nunez delivered the coldest interview after stunning Uruguay form continues at Copa America

Darwin Nunez delivered the coldest interview after stunning Uruguay form continues at Copa America

Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez has been in superb form for Uruguay and netted in the 3-1 Copa America win over Panama.

Liverpool star Darwin Nunez delivered a cold interview after continuing his electric form for Uruguay.

Marcelo Bielsa kicked off their campaign at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Monday, beating Panama 3-1 to get off to a winning start in Group C.

And Nunez, now sporting cornrows, got off the mark for the tournament with a left-footed volley in the 85th minute.

He celebrated with a shush celebration after finding the net for the ninth time in eight games since Bielsa took the reins.

Nunez has come off the back of an 18-goal season for Liverpool but there has been criticism of the amount of clear-cut chances missed.

He did spurn opportunities in the opener in Miami before finding the net to put his country 2-0 up.

But the former Benfica man does not pay too much attention and offered a defiant statement after his strike against Panama.

Speaking in the mixed zone, as per Juan Pablo Romero, he said: "I'm going to make 5 or 10 mistakes, but I'm going to try 11 times. You should never give up, otherwise nothing will ever come of it."

Nunez was praised for his display by multiple media outlets, with Uruguayan newspaper El Pais hailing him.

Commenting on his performance, they wrote: "Incisive, dangerous and putting a lot of pressure on the defenders, although the main one must have been in the definition since he had the chances to score, but he couldn't take advantage of them. Of course, perhaps the most difficult of all he ended up taking advantage of with a great left-footed shot that beat the rival goalkeeper.”
