Since then, he has recorded 68 international goals in 137 appearances, making him the nation’s all-time top scorer.
The Uruguayan has been banging in the goals for his country ever since opening his account in 2007
Luis Suarez is one of the best strikers in modern-day football and is Uruguay’s all-time leading goal scorer by some distance.
For the national team, it all started with a tumultuous debut appearance against Colombia in 2007, with Suarez receiving a red card in the 85th minute of the game that his team won 1-3.
That was merely an unfortunate start to a fine international career, though, and the forward got his first Uruguay goal at the senior level in a 5-0 friendly win against Bolivia later in the same year.
That turned out to be the start of an impressive goalscoring run and Suarez has since been able to rise to the top of Uruguayan football heights.
Just how many international strikes does he have to his name, though, and in which competitions did he find the net the most often?
