Luis Suarez’ par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Copa Amer­ica Cen­te­nario is in doubt af­ter the Uruguay striker left Spain’s Copa del Rey fi­nal with an ap­par­ent mus­cle in­jury and in tears. Suarez was ex­pected to un­dergo tests yes­ter­day to find out the ex­tent of the right leg in­jury that forced him to limp off the pitch in the sec­ond half of the game against Sevilla at the Vi­cente Calderon Sta­dium in Madrid. He was seen celebrating with the rest of his team­mates af­ter Barcelona won 2-0 in ex­tra time, but walked gin­gerly and at times still looked in pain. On Twit­ter, Suarez showed op­ti­mism: “Now we wait for the tests. I hope it’s noth­ing so I can be with my na­tional team next week.”
