After scoring the winning goal against Saudi Arabia in his 100th international appearance, Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez celebrated in a very special way.

Suarez was snapped pacing the ball under his jersey like a baby bump and kissing it before later announcing his wife's pregnancy.

He posted the image to Twitter, along with pictures of his team and family, to reveal that they were expecting their third child.

"HAPPY to be part of Uruguay's history accomplishing 100 games!!!!! HAPPY to achieve the final 16 stage again and even more HAPPY to share that we'll have our third child THANK YOU ALL for the support specially to my loved ones," he wrote.

Suarez's memorable performance saw both Uruguay and host Russia into the second round of the World Cup while eliminating Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

It was the Barcelona striker's 52nd goal for his country in that century of games.
