Luis Suarez has said “records are there to be broken” after his goal helped Uruguay beat hosts Russia 3-0 on Monday and clinch top spot in Group A with three straight wins.
“I am happy … records are there to be broken,” he said after the game, noting that it was also the first time Uruguay had won three matches in a row at a World Cup.
“It’s obviously what we wanted. We wanted to keep growing throughout the World Cup and after winning two matches 1-0, we wanted to do better today.”
At the tournament four years ago, Suarez was expelled for inexplicably sinking his teeth into the shoulder of Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during a group match.
