Lusi Suarez revealed his pride at Uruguay’s World Cup campaign after they were knocked out of the tournament by France on Friday.

Goals from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann sent France into the semi-finals but Suarez doesn’t appear too downhearted by the defeat.

He wrote: “Proud of all my teammates who gave everything till the end!!! Thankful for all the support we received every minute in this World Cup both from Uruguay and from the people who made an effort to come and accompany us, to our FAMILIES that always support and accompany us I thank everyone for helping us not to miss anything (MEDICAL PEOPLE, UTILITY AND KITCHEN). We gave the most we had to fulfill the dream, we couldn’t make it but we feel great SATISFACTION FOR ALL THAT GAVE THIS GROUP AND COACHES!!!!! Vamos Uruguay TODAY AND ALWAYS!!!!!”

After a busy season and a hectic World Cup Suarez now gets to put his feet up for a few weeks before he’s due back for pre-season training at Barcelona.
