Uruguay striker Luis Suarez took his reputation as a fierce competitor to new heights in his side's 1-0 win over Chile in the Copa America on Monday night.

First he appealed for a handball... against Chile's goalkeeper before later asking for their defender Gonzalo Jara to be sent off after he tripped up a pitch invader.

The 32-year-old's career has been shrouded with controversial moments and these were the latest ones in another high-profile match.

With his side searching for a goal against the Copa America holders to earn them top spot in the group, Suarez raced into the box and rounded Chile's Gabriel Arias but the keeper rose again to punch the striker's shot away for a corner in the 23rd minute.

Suarez, however, seemed to momentarily forget that Arias' job is to stop shots with his hands and appealed for a penalty, gesticulating to the referee by pointing to his own hand.

The striker's protest only lasted a brief moment before putting his hands on his head to console himself for the missed opportunity.

In the second half, he made another frantic appeal to the referee to ask for Chile's Jara to be sent off after the defender tripped up a pitch invader.

The invader, who wore a chicken head mask, managed to sprint a third of the way on to the field - evading the onrushing stewards. As he got closer to the halfway line he was stopped in his tracks by Jara - prompting Suarez to inexplicably chase after the referee to send off his opponent.

Suarez's strike partner Edinson Cavani later grabbed the only goal of the game which saw 15-times Copa America champions Uruguay finish top of Group C ahead of Chile to set up a quarter-final tie with Peru.

The incidents come exactly five years to the day when Suarez infamously bit Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in a group-stage decider at the 2014 World Cup, which saw him banned for four months.

Meanwhile at the 2010 World Cup, Suarez was the culprit in a controversial handball as Uruguay reached the semi-finals at the expense of Ghana.

Ghana seemed certain to become the first African side to reach the last four of the competition when Suarez saw red after handling on the line in the dying seconds of extra-time.
