Uruguay vs Argentina 0-0 Highlights & Goals World Cup Qualifier, 31 August 2017.
Luis Suarez appeared to aggravate a knee injury in Uruguay’s goalless draw at home to Argentina in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.
Suarez was surprisingly included in Uruguay’s starting XI, despite being sidelined with a knee injury since Barcelona’s Supercopa de Espana second-leg loss to Real Madrid on August 16.
Barca boss Ernesto Valverde and the LaLiga club were left sweating when Suarez dropped to the ground clutching his knee in pain with seven minutes remaining before hobbling off in MonteVideo on Thursday.
Argentina dominated proceedings at Estadio Centenario but they were unable to make their possession count in Jorge Sampaoli’s competitive debut as head coach after he replaced Edgardo Bauza in June.
The draw saw third-placed Uruguay – winless in six matches – improve to 24 points after 15 matches, a point adrift of Colombia and a point ahead of Argentina.
