Luis Suarez Played As A Goalkeeper For Diego Forlan's Testimonial And He's Actually Quite Good

Barcelona striker Luis Suárez decided to show off his ability as a goalkeeper during a farewell match for former international teammate Diego Forlan on Saturday night.

The 32-year-old joined the likes of Juan Sebastian Veron, Juan Roman Riquelme and Esteban Cambiasso in a star-studded game at the Estadio Centenario, Montevideo, as Uruguay went up against an International Friends XI.

Suarez, who has been known to go in nets during Barca training, gave fans a unique spectacle in the second half of Forlan's testimonial, producing a number of impressive saves, as well as a few daft errors.

Uruguayan TV station @teledoce have posted a number of clips of Suarez in goal for us to enjoy.

He actually looks decent in between the sticks...at times.




The match eventually finished 6-6 as Diego Forlan scored on his final farewell, but it was the appearance of Suarez between the sticks that grabbed the headlines.

It comes just months after the former Liverpool striker hilariously appealed for a penalty when a goalkeeper handled the ball during Uruguay's Copa America Group C win over Chile.

In the 22nd minute, as Suarez attempted to cut the ball back to strike partner Edinson Cavani, La Roja's No.1 Gabriel Arias intervened excellently with his hand.

The ball went out for a corner but Suarez wanted more than that.

Straight away the former Liverpool star slapped his hand and called for a penalty before remembering the age-old law that goalkeepers are allowed to use their hands in their box.

Never change, Luis.
