Dulce de leche responsible for Uruguay's shock WC defeat?

The Uruguay football team had 39kg of dulche de leche confiscated as they entered Brazil for the start of the world cup. Some fans are blaming the defeat to Costa Rica on a lack of dulche de leche. It is delicious but I'm sure you must be able to get it in Brazil ,though sourcing that much at short notice might be an issue.

    1. It's that bloody Suarez. He's spent so much time here, he doesnt need the dulche de leche - just give him a bowl of scouse and off he goes scoring goals.

        Going into this game Suarez was chewing on Hodgson’s comment that he had yet to prove himself a “world class” striker like Messi and Ronaldo. He was out for revenge and surely it tasted very sweet.
        Now who to cheer on?

          Judging by today Suarez was missing his dulche de leche badly and very very hungry.

            He's got a nice set of teeth. He better hope some one else doesn't decide they want them for a necklace.
