Neymar offered Luis Suarez support after the Uruguay star missed a penalty in a shoot-out loss to Peru in the Copa America quarterfinals.

REPORT | PER 0-0 URU (5-4 PEN)

Suarez was the only player to miss in the shoot-out as Peru advanced 5-4 after a 0-0 draw in Salvador on Saturday. The Barcelona forward was in tears after the defeat as Uruguay — unbeaten in the group stage — bowed out.


Suarez's former club team-mate Neymar, who is linked with a return to Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain, offered the Uruguayan support. "Get up," the injured Brazil forward wrote on his Instagram story, alongside a video of Suarez crying. "You are very great, brother. I love you friend."

Neymar is widely reported to be returning to Barcelona ahead of next season, two years after leaving the La Liga champion.
