The 26-year-old appeared to strike Chile and Nottingham Forest defender Gonzalo Jara in the face whilst playing for Uruguay in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday evening
The 26-year-old played the whole 90 minutes as his side fell to a 2-0 defeat to Chile which has severely dented their hopes of World Cup qualification.
And the frustration appeared to get the better of the former Ajax man as he aimed a jab at an opposition defender with 36 minutes on the clock.

Jara did not react to the incident, however, with play continuing as normal following the clash between the pair.
Following their defeat in Santiago, Walter Tabarez's side sit two points behind Chile, who occupy the fourth and final automatic qualification spot.
