Luis Suárez is still working to recover from injury and help his team, Uruguay, in Copa América. Since he can't kick with power, the Barcelona forward has sated his desire to play as goalkeeper in a training match. In this curious picture shared by Uruguay on Twitter, you can see Suárez dressed as goalkeeper playing with their mates.

Uruguay made debut with defeat in Copa América against Mexico (3-1) and now they hope to win the next games against Venezuela and Jamaica to get a place in the quarterfinals. The return of the Suárez could be in this round, to be played on June 19.

The striker was injured on May 22 during Copa del Rey final; he suffered a torn hamstring in his right leg. Initially it was said he would be out between three and four weeks.
