Luis Suarez scores twice from the penalty spot but is unable to stop Uruguay suffering chastening World Cup qualifying ...


Luis Suarez scored twice but couldn't stop Uruguay getting hammered 4-2 by Ecuador in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night.


The home side, reeling from their opening-day defeat by Argentina, went ahead through Moises Caicedo after 13 minutes.


Michael Estrada then got a goal each side of half-time to put them firmly in the driving seat before Gonzalo Plata made it four with a quarter of an hour remaining.


Suarez got two back for Uruguay in the dying minutes, both of them from the spot, to put a more respective sheen on the scoreline.


Nevertheless, it was Uruguay's first defeat over 90 minutes since going down 1-0 to world champions France in a November 2018 friendly, a run that extends back 15 games.
