Luis Suarez joined Barcelona to win trophies. Job done!
Suarez had already won four titles with the Catalan club this year – La Liga, the Copa del Rey, the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup – and he’s just scored two goals secure their fifth major title of 2015.
After teammate Lionel Messi has netted a first-half opener, former Liverpool star Suarez raced onto a Sergio Busquets though pass to put Barca 2-0 up on River Plate after 49 minutes of today’s FIFA Club World Cup final in Japan.
Suarez then headed in Neymar cross on 69 minutes to bag his 17th goal in his last 11 appearances. You can see that goal below.
Uruguay’s star striker was – ridiculously – not named among the three final nominees for this year’s Ballon d’Or, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar picked ahead of him.
FIFA’s snub is an embarrassment when you consider that Suarez has scored 28 goals in 33 La Liga games this calendar year, as well as netting in the final of the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and now – albeit after the vote had taken place – the FIFA Club World Cup final.
