Luis Suarez made a triumphant debut in the 2014 World Cup, bagging a brace to lead Uruguay to a 2-1 defeat of England at the Arena Corinthians on Thursday.

The Liverpool man was recovering from knee surgery when Uruguay opened the tournament with a defeat to Costa Rica last week, but he started Thursday's clash against England and put the South American side in front in the 39th minute.
