As Luis Suarez's double last night seemingly crushed England's dreams of qualification from the World Cup's group stages, the Uruguayan's performance should hardly have come as a surprise.
England's in-form forward Daniel Sturridge temped fate by publicly saying he would be happy to see his Liverpool teammate on the pitch in tonight's game between the two sides and he surely regretted those comments come the 85th minute in yesterday's encounter.
Any look at the incredible goal stats he has amassed throughout his career, whether on international duty or at Liverpool, indicates that England was bound to give Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka a tough time.
How good is Suarez?
Suarez is a goal machine and he has done it at this level before.
The Uruguay striker has played 77 times for his country, scoring on 41 occasions. He netted three times in the World Cup in South Africa, four times as Uruguay won the Copa America in 2011 and three in five games at last year's Confederation Cup.
His record for Liverpool is equally impressive - if not better. In three-and-a-half seasons in the Premier League, the Uruguayan has scored 82 times in 133 appearances.
This season in particular he has been on fire, topping the Premier League scoring charts with just below a goal a game.His non penalty goals ratio per 90 minutes (NPG90) was 0.94, second only to Manchester City's star man Sergio Aguero who only managed 23 appearances in an injury-plagued campaign.
