Patrice Evra trolls Luis Suarez by liking picture of the Uruguayan crying following World Cup exit

Patrice Evra has poked fun at Luis Suarez by liking a post on Instagram of the striker crying following Uruguay's shock exit from the World Cup.

Uruguay failed to advance past the group stages despite beating Ghana 2-0 last night.

South Korea's shock win over group winners Portugal ensured that the Asian team would go through, with Uruguay level on goal difference, but missed out due to the fact that Korea had scored more goals than them in the group stages.

Emotions ran high after the final whistle, especially with Suarez who was playing in his final World Cup and he was seen crying on the bench after the game.

Many a fan were quick to poke fun at the former Barcelona and Liverpool striker, mainly because of his actions in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa where his deliberate handball helped to save a certain goal right at the end of extra time against the same nation, resulted in Asamoah Gyan missing the resulting penalty that would have seen the African side advance to the semi-finals.

We all know that Uruguay went onto win on penalties but it stands out as one of the most controversial moments in recent WC history for a reason.

This is why the game last night had added meaning and stakes, and with The Sky Blue's 2-0 up in just minutes thanks to a quickfire double from Giorgian de Arrascaeta, they looked like triumphing once again.

However, Hwang Hee-Chan's late winner against Portugal meant that Uruguay would not qualify in what was another WC shock, with Ghana exacting revenge on Suarez, despite themselves not qualifying.

This led to a now-famous photo being captured on the night, as Suarez was caught crying on the bench following the win that was plastered across social media.

Popular football account 433 posted it on their account as it achieved over three and a half million likes, but one like stood out more than others.

The former Manchester United defender Evra was caught liking the post which was quickly spotted by fans.

Suarez and Evra's history is infamous as the Uruguayan was found guilty of racially abusing the Frenchman whilst United faced Liverpool in 2011 at Anfield.

As a result of the incident, Suarez was banned for eight matches and given a £40,000 fine.

Over the years Evra has been very vocal about that day and was hurt by Liverpool's players who wore t-shirts in support of the striker whilst warming up for games around the time.

The former defender even spoke out on how he had to hold himself back from confronting the forward when seeing him walking through the streets in Manchester only because he was with his family.

Given his justifiable hatred towards for the former Premier League striker, he was not going to miss a chance to troll his former rival.

Suarez hit out at FIFA following the loss last night, claiming 'they don't respect us' but its unlikely he will receive any sympathy from Ghana or Evra any time soon.
