VIDEO: Luis Suarez scores first goal for Barcelona

Luis Suarez has scored his first goal for Barcelona's B team in their friendly match against Indonesia u-19s.

The Uruguayan forward is currently serving his four month ban for biting Georgio Chiellini during the World Cup and is unable to make his debut for the senior Barcelona side until October 24th, when they face Real Madrid in an el Classico.

But in the meantime new Barca manager Luis Enrique wants Suarez to play in B team friendlies in order to regain the match sharpness he would have lost after going so long without a competitive match.

It seems the striker, who joined the Catalan club for a fee in the region of £75 million earlier this summer, is already showing signs that he is regaining that touch that made his so lethal in the Premier League with his first goal against Indonesia.

In the 12th minute Suarez latched onto a chipped through ball from the impressive and highly-rated youngster Alen Halilovic, before taking a touch and hiting shot that bobbled off the slide challenge of an opposing defender and into the net off the post, making the score 2-0.

The talismanic forward who scored 33 league goals for Liverpool last season, might have had a second had the referee awarded a penalty for what looked like a clear foul on Halilovic in the area.

It's also worth a mention that Suarez wasn't the only player to score his first Barcelona goal, £15 million signing from Arsenal Thomas Vermaelan was able to bag the first with a neat header.
