Suarez lands incredible goalscoring feat

Luis Suarez scored twice in Atletico Madrid’s comeback win against Getafe on Tuesday to complete a remarkable feat.

The 34-year-old netted a 91st minute winner for the Colchoneros, but it was his goal in the 78th minute that will go down in history.

He expertly trapped a cross into the box from Mario Hermoso with his left foot, before lashing an unstoppable effort past Getafe goalkeeper David Soria.

And the goal meant Suarez has now scored in EVERY minute between the 1st and 97th in his career.

He becomes just the third-ever player in history to achieve the feat, following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

CR7 managed the achievement all the way back in 2014 after a seventh minute penalty against none other than Atletico Madrid themselves.

Ibrahimovic also ticked off scoring in every minute possible in the same year, with a 24th minute goal in an international match for Sweden against Estonia.

Even the great Lionel Messi is yet to achieve the feat of scoring in every minute of a game.

And Suarez was at it again just over ten minutes later, nodding home a cross from Sime Vrsaljko in the 91st minute to secure a dramatic comeback victory for Diego Simeone’s side.

The controversial striker netted 21 times in La Liga last season, helping Atletico to a first league title since 2014.

And his goals on Tuesday night were the 488th and 489th goals of his 783 game career so far.

It puts Simeone’s side second in La Liga after six matches, two points behind fierce rivals Real Madrid.

Suarez’s performance on Tuesday was a perfect response to criticism the Uruguayan has faced, after he had scored just one goal in six games before the Getafe clash.
