DIRK KUYT and Luis Suarez were both on target for their countries in last night’s international friendly in Montevideo – but it was the Uruguayan who was celebrating after a 4-3 penalty shoot-out success over Holland.
Suarez and Kuyt both struck late on in a 1-1 draw.
But the South Americans held their nerve better in a packed Estadio Centenario to claim the Copa Confraternidad title.
A superb run from Edinson Cavani laid on an opportunity for Suarez to break the deadlock, but Kuyt's header sent the match to spot kicks.
Robin Van Persie's wild effort flew over and Eljero Elia's tame strike allowed Alvao Pereira to slot home the winning kick and claim the spoils.
Suarez started up front for Uruguay alongside Diego Forlan and Cavani, but the latter squandered the best chance of a tepid first half.
Suarez broke on the left-hand side and floated a cross into the prolific Napoli frontman, but his header lacked power and allowed Erik Pieters to clear.
Then, with eight minutes left, a wonderful run by Cavani down the left took him all the way to the byline, and his cutback was controlled calmly by Suarez, who slotted under the body of Krul at the near post.
However, the Dutch weren't ready to end their mini-South American tour with defeat just yet, and snatched an equaliser in injury time. A corner into the near post found Kuyt, who sent the tie to penalties.
