The former Ajax ace was filled with joy following the three-goal victory in the final and signalled the importance of his team's positive start to the crucial match

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez was over the moon with his team's 3-0 triumph over Paraguay in the Copa America final.

The Liverpool attacker paved the way for Uruguay's victory, scoring the opening goal on 12 minutes before Diego Forlan sealed it off with two more goals, one in each half.

As Uruguay claimed their 15th Copa America title to become the competition's most successful team, Suarez was extremely pleased with his side's achievement.

"Luckily, we reached the goal of getting to the final, which was what we wanted, and winning the title is the maximum you can get," he told the press after the match.

"We have a huge joy to give this title to our people, this is an indescribable feeling."

The 24-year-old frontman stated Paraguay were a hard team to beat, but noted that Uruguay's early goal played a crucial role in the outcome of the match.

"We knew Paraguay were a tough opponent but the important thing was that we started the first half well, we scored twice and that was crucial. It was hard for them to make a comeback," he concluded.
