Luis Suarez admitted that “the flame is dying out” as he edges towards the end of his career.

Suarez is currently at the Copa America with Uruguay, who topped their group with three wins from three and are preparing for a quarter-final against Brazil.

Unlike in previous tournaments where he was the main man, the 37-year-old has been limited to just two substitute appearances so far, with Marcelo Bielsa steering the side towards younger talents.

Despite only playing for eight minutes in total, Suarez, who is Uruguay’s all-time top scorer with 68 goals, is determined to enjoy what is likely his final major tournament for his country.

“I’m enjoying every moment very much,” Suarez told AUF TV.

“It is something that at my age, as you get older, you enjoy it more and more whether you’re playing a lot or playing a little, because you know that the flame of football is dying out.

“I’m just one more [player in the squad], you’ve already seen it. Playing or not playing, I’m happy with the part I’m doing and trying to help as much as I can.”
