Luis Suarez played in goal over the weekend in a farewell match for Uruguay striker Diego Forlan who announced his retirement earlier this year.

The Barcelona striker took part in the match at the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo along with players such as Juan Sebastian Verón, Juan Roman Riquelme and Christian Stuani.

Suarez played the first half in his normal position and set up goals for Loco Abreu and Forlan and then took his place between the sticks for the second half.

The Barcelona striker did a pretty decent job as goalkeeper, by all accounts, in a match that finished 6-6 between a Uruguay team and an international Friends XI.
