Gmail’s new filters make it easier to search your email

Asked about Suarez, who has scored four goals in his past three games for Barca, and his future, Tabarez told reporters: “Every player wears out during his career. In the 60′s I read an article about Pele, I don’t need to introduce him, written by doctors saying that Pele had the body of someone 20 years older than him. “So, how long has Suarez been on the national team? He’s here from 2007. How many games he played? How many goals he scored? How many times did he play injured? How many times he had surprising recoveries?
