Antoine Griezmann's decision not to celebrate his World Cup quarter-final goal out of respect for Uruguay has received a lukewarm response from Luis Suarez.
The 27-year-old later spoke of his "love" for "Uruguayans and Uruguayan culture" formed by close relationships with club team-mate Diego Godin and former Real Sociedad mentor Martin Lasarte.
Suarez, however, rejected the gesture as hollow given Griezmann's role in ending his nation's tournament.
"He's not Uruguayan, he's French and he scored a goal," the Barcelona star told reporters.
"He doesn't know what we have to do to succeed in football. He will have his customs and his Uruguayan way of speaking, but we feel differently."
Suarez rued the injury absence of strike partner Edinson Cavani as "essential" to the result , although Uruguay's hopes of advancing were not aided by Fernando Muslera's poor error for Griezmann's goal .
Captain and key defender Godin refused to blame Muslera for the defeat.
"Fernando is a great goalkeeper. We all make mistakes. On other occasions he saved us with incredible stops," Godin said.
