Hwang Hee-Chan’s strike put the Taegeuk Warriors on the cusp of reaching the World Cup knockout stages.
The news quickly filtered through to Uruguay during their match with Ghana – prompting a flurry of emotions from Suarez.
The former Liverpool man shouted at his team-mates on the sidelines before putting his head in his hands in dismay.
Suarez began to well up and it wasn’t long before the tears began to flow from the veteran striker’s eyes.
Footy fans around the globe were quick to comment, with one saying: “Please and thanks send photos of Suarez crying.”
Another said: “Suarez is crying so a win is a win”
And another said: “Suarez crying. Inject it.”
One remarked: “Nothing better than Suarez crying the horrible f**k.”
Another chimed in: “Suarez? The most dirtiest horrible footballer ever. Good to see him crying.”
Hwang’s winner meant Uruguay – who at the time were beating the Ghanaians 2-0 – would be eliminated by virtue of goals scored.
Suarez cut a dejected and frustrated figure as his team-mates pressed forward in search of a third goal that would send them through.
And the tears began to flow again after the final whistle went and brought his World Cup dream to an end.
Uruguay lost their heads in the aftermath of the match and began berating the referee Daniel Siebert as he made his way off the pitch.
There were tears of joy from the South Korea squad following their progression through to the last 16.
