Luis Suarez is one of the finest goalscorers of the modern era, but even the very best get it wrong occasionally – particularly from the penalty spot.
The Uruguayan legend is now in Brazil and has been among the goals.
Suarez fluffed his lines on his latest outing with Gremio, his current club, by missing a penalty during his league debut for the Brazilian team.
Despite netting a hat-trick on his competitive bow, Suarez sent the ball sailing into the crowd early in the second half against Santos.
Suarez, who is now 36 years old, joined Gremio in December 2022. He had previously scored 111 goals for Ajax in Europe, 82 for Liverpool, and 198 for Barcelona.
The enigmatic frontman returned to his native South America in 2022 and helped his boyhood club, Nacional, to win league titles after retracting his steps to where it all began for him.
Suarez’s penalty miss in his latest outing did not cost Gremio the game, as Joao Pedro scored the only goal of the match on the stroke of half-time, securing a 1-0 victory for the Porto Alegre-based outfit.
