Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has declared that he is fully fit for Uruguay’s World Cup clash with England.
The 27-year-old had to have surgery on the knee but he insists there was never any doubt about his participation in the tournament.
“At no moment did I think I would lose the chance of playing in the World Cup. I’ve never thought that during my recovery,” said Suarez, who scored 27 Premier League goals last season.
“Now I am 100 per cent.”
Suarez trained with his team-mates at Uruguay’s base on the outskirts of Belo Horizonte on Monday.
Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez refused to say whether Suarez would definitely start against England, though.
“It is a possibility, I can say no more,” Tabarez told a press conference.
