Luis Suarez Starts For Uruguay Against England In Crucial World Cup Group D Game

Anfield star Luis Suarez will start for Uruguay against England in their crunch 2014 FIFA World Cup Group match tonight.

Luis Suarez will start for Uruguay against England this evening.

The Liverpool forward has been out of action since the end of last season with a knee injury, and had minor surgery in late May to try to cure the problem.

Having had close to four weeks to recover from the operation, and been in full training for a number of days, Suarez has been deemed ready to start for Uruguay in their crunch match against England.

Earlier today, Three Lions skipper Steven Gerrard had labelled Suarez a “genius” for his ability on the ball, creativity and sensational goal record, and England’s hopes may well rest on the mercurial hitman being less than the 100% fit he claims.

Much of the pre-match focus around Roy Hodgson’s side has been on the role that Wayne Rooney will play, but of greater concern now will be how England’s defence handles Luis Suarez.

With Diego Lugano injured, Diego Godin will captain the Uruguayans.
