Liverpool's exit from the UEFA Europa League at the hands of Zenit St. Petersburg yesterday was embarrassing. Not embarrassing however, was this strike off of the foot of Luis Suarez, whose free kick goal put the Reds level on aggregate and gave them a glimmer of hope to score another and advance, which they failed to do.

Suarez, despite numerous on field incidents in his career that include a suspension for racial abuse and more diving than Greg Louganis, is a world class striker who, when staying out of trouble, is one of the best in the world. Hopefully he can continue to keep it together so people can appreciate the great things he is capable of.
