Other than a brilliant set-piece, Suarez did not hit his peak during this years Confederations Cup.
This is a last minute addition in light of the Confederations Cup performances he exhibited, and is meant to serve as a warning: Don't go back to your old ways, Luis (not that he'll read it anyway).
Known as something of a ball hogger a couple of years ago, Suarez has since replaced those mazy runs that generally ended in hitting the post with some mazy runs in a more productive vein. He finished last season with 23 goals and 11 assists in the league.
However, whether down to tiredness or from being distracted by the transfer saga hanging over him, Suarez reverted back to his old ways in Brazil, particularly against the tougher sides such as the hosts and Spain.
Whereas the new Suarez would dance round his opponents and scythe the ball into the net, this looked more like the older version, who had bags of potential but didn't know quite how to use it. The number of times he tried to take players on while having passing options, only to be dispossessed, became quite annoying by the time Uruguay exited at the hands of Brazil.
Still, he is a world-class player and probably endured a blip brought on by fatigue. Let's just hope that he gets back to his prime in time for the start of 2013/14.
