South Korea scored a 91st minute goal over Portugal to advance in the World Cup.
Luis Suarez, whose Uruguay team was leading Ghana 2-0 at the same time, saw the update on the scoreboard and broke down.
Korea's win ultimately eliminated Uruguay from the tournament.
Luis Suarez could only look on in horror as he realized Uruguay's World Cup hopes were dying.
To advance to the knockout stage of the World Cup, Uruguay needed a decisive win over Ghana and for South Korea to lose to or tie Portugal.
However, in the 91st minute, South Korea's Hwang Hee-chan scored a goal against Portugal to take a 2-1 lead.
Though Uruguay was ahead in its match 2-0, South Korea's last-gasp goal tolled the death knell for Uruguay.
Suarez, who was on the bench, was caught by cameras looking at the scoreboard, seeing South Korea's goal, and breaking down.
He was more distraught after the match, as Uruguay was knocked out, despite defeating Ghana 2-0.
It's expected that Suarez is going to retire from international competition following the loss.
Suarez's World Cup history is checkered. In 2010, against Ghana, he committed a handball to stop a goal. Ghana then missed the penalty kick to take a 2-1 lead. Uruguay went on to win in penalty kicks.
Suarez was recently asked about the incident and refused to apologize.
"I don't apologize about that, I did the handball, but the Ghana player missed the penalty, not me," Suarez said at a press conference in Doha. "I could apologize if I injured a player with a tackle and got a red card, but in this situation I take a red card and the referee says penalty.
"It's not my fault, I didn't miss the penalty. The player who missed the penalty said he would do the same [as I did] in that situation. It's not my responsibility in this situation."
Suarez was suspended during the 2014 World Cup for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini. Uruguay then lost in the quarterfinals.
He had a strong tournament in 2018, but Uruguay eventually lost to the eventual champions France in the quarterfinals.
