Luis Suarez said he was left with a ‘bittersweet feeling’ after Uruguay’s 2-2 draw with Japan at the Copa America.

The Barcelona striker bagged his second goal of the tournament in the match, as his side twice came from behind to pick up a point in an entertaining game.

However, the 32-year-old rued the mistakes his team made during the match after the full-time whistle.

“We have to correct mistakes and praise the positive things,” he said. ”We were the ones who created the most clear chances. That is why we left with a bittersweet feeling.

”We played a good game at a general level, but we have the consequence that in this kind of tournament you have two mistakes and they make two goals and you have to be more careful.”
