Luis Suarez says he is 100 percent recovered from knee surgery and will be available to play against England on Thursday. The Liverpool striker suited up for Uruguay’s World Cup opener, a 3-1 loss to Costa Rica, but did not play. "I have been training for a few days with the team and I am 100 percent ready,” Suarez said. “I now only need time on the pitch and to play the game.”
As all of England’s players play either with or against Suarez in the Premier League, the Uruguayan feels confident that he knows how to exploit England’s weaknesses. "I know all the English national-team players, both because they are teammates or because they are rivals. They have defensive woes that we can take advantage of, but I won't tell the press how we have to play."
