Barcelona's Luis Suarez to miss Uruguay friendlies with hamstring injury

Barcelona have confirmed that Luis Suarez will be unavailable for around 15 days after injuring his hamstring in training on Thursday.

The Uruguay international will miss his country's friendly games against Republic of Ireland and Italy on June 4 and 7, his federation confirmed.

Suarez, 30, was already ruled out of the Copa del Rey final on Saturday due to suspension after being sent off in the semifinal second leg against Atletico Madrid.

Suarez, who joined Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014, has scored 37 goals in 51 games in all competitions this season and finished second to Lionel Messi in La Liga's top scorer charts.
