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.”

The result leaves Uruguay top of Group C on four points ahead of Chile’s clash with Ecuador. Uruguay finish their group campaign against the holders on Monday.
