Luis Suarez Fitness Step In World Cup Race As Uruguay Striker



Luis Suarez will take another step towards winning the race to be fit to face England at the World Cup on Monday when he trains with team-mates. The Liverpool striker is not expected to take part in the full session but for the first time since going under the knife for surgery on the meniscus cartilage he will run out with team-mates at Uruguay’s Montevideo training camp.  The 31-goal Golden Boot was operated on 11 days ago and has been doing intensive physiotherapy at home ever since. He gave Uruguay’s football-crazy 3 million population a major boost on Friday when he strolled into the national team’s World Cup training base to have lunch with his team-mates, He then went home to watch their 1-0 win over Northern Ireland in the Centenario Stadium where they face Slovenia in their final friendly on Wednesday.  Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez is adamant that he will not rush back the country’s best player. After the narrow victory over Northern Ireland he said: ‘Luis will join up with the rest of the squad this week and depending on how his knee responds we will see how soon we can count on him to start a match.’ SEE MORE AFTER CUT>>
