His action led to a straight red card while Ghana were awarded a penalty which Asamoah Gyan unfortunately missed. The game eventually ended in a shootout won by Uruguay 4-2.
"When Ghana missed the penalty, Sebastian Eguren gave me a hug," Suarez told Kicker.
"On the way to the cabin [after receiving the red card], I was very down.
"A lot of things went through my head. Shit, red, we're leaving! A feeling of pain.
"But Seba stopped me, so I was out of the player's tunnel and was able to see them miss the penalty."
Uruguay, however, bowed out of the tournament in the semis following a 3-2 defeat to the Netherlands.
