Suarez was devastated after the shootout defeat, the star burst into tears:
Uruguay have squandered the chance to lift the Copa America before their golden generation of stars hang up their boots, the likes of Edinson Cavani, Suarez and Diego Godin are all approaching the end of their careers.
A Copa America triumph would’ve been a perfect ending to their international journeys.
