Luis Suarez scored his first and second goals for Barcelona in a friendly for the B team behind closed doors.

The Uruguayan striker is banned from first-team action until 26 October for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

Initially Suarez was banned "from all football activity" for four months that included taking part in training and even being at the Nou Camp, but the Court of Arbitration for sport overruled the decision, allowing Suarez to train but upholding the four-month suspension.

Suarez played the final 15 minutes of a pre-season friendly against Mexican side Leon but failed to star.

On Wednsday afternoon the former Liverpool striker, bought for £75m this summer, got on the Barcelona scoresheet for the first time when the B team played Indonesia Under-19s at the club’s training complex.

Former Arsenal centre-back Thomas Vermaelen, bought by Barcelona for £15m from the Gunners, made his first appearance for the Catalan club.

 

Suarez took just 13 minutes to score against the Indonesian youngsters, latching onto a through pass and firing a left-footed shot into the far corner.

In a game that ended up 6-0 to Barcelona, Suarez was again on target, turning his way out of the clutches of his marker and then curling a fantastic shot, again with his left-foot, into the top corner.
