Neymar offers Suarez support after Copa America penalty miss
Neymar offered Luis Suarez support after the Uruguay star missed a penalty in a shoot-out loss to Peru in the Copa America quarter-finals.
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."
