The two nations clash on June 19, however, there has been doubt as to whether or not the brilliant South American star would be able to play in the huge contest after undergoing emergency surgery on a knee injury back home in his native Montevideo last week.

Suarez, 27, suffered a problem during training, with it being estimated that the prolific striker could be out of action for as long as between four and six weeks as he recovers from the operation.

However, the player has apparently already been bust texting his team-mates at Anfield who he will come up against next month to warn them that he will be back in time for the much-anticipated contest in Sao Paulo.

And Reds midfielder Jordan Henderson  has now said that he never doubted that Suarez would be fit for the tournament.

“Everybody was obviously disappointed for Luis, people that know him – maybe not us – because he is a big player for Uruguay,” said Henderson.

“I gave him a text to see if he is doing all right and wished him good luck with whatever he has got to have done.

“But knowing the type of person he is, he is a fighter and I am sure come maybe the first game or the second game in the World Cup, he will be ready and raring to go.”
