Luis Suarez has praised Darwin Nunez on Instagram after the Liverpool striker’s performance for Uruguay this weekend.
The former Anfield talisman replied to the 24-year-old’s post on the social media platform to praise his performance after Uruguay beat Chile 3-1 in their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Suarez wrote: “Way to go Darwin! Tremendous match and starting winning is always important! Let’s go up with everything that’s just started.”
With Nunez handed Suarez’s no. 9 shirt for Uruguay, this international break will be viewed by many as a real changing of the guard for the South American giants.
Yet with Suarez pleased with how Nunez performed for the two-time World Cup champions, there’s every chance that the Liverpool forward will only get more confident from here.
