The Uruguay striker - who scored his country's second goal in the 2-1 win over the Three Lions - says his club-mate is "one of the best" despite his late error in Brazil
The Liverpool striker nodded home an Edinson Cavani cross in the first half before capitalising on an error from Gerrard to net an 88th minute-winner - despite undergoing keyhole surgery on his knee a matter of weeks ago.
Wayne Rooney's first ever World Cup goal afforded England a glimmer of hope in the second half but the joy was short-lived, with Gerrard cutting a forlorn figure as he trudged off the pitch at full-time.
And Suarez admits he did not like seeing his club-mate so upset, having been comforted by the England captain after Liverpool's 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
"He's the best player I've played with on the pitch,” Suarez said.
"This is an unlucky moment for him. I don't like it when he hurts like this. I said 'Keep going, forget this game, you're one of the best'."
