Luis Suarez has declared himself 100% fit to face England

Luis Suarez has declared himself 100% fit to face England

Suarez had targeted Thursday's World Cup Group G clash as a realistic recovery date after undergoing keyhole surgery on his knee last month.

The striker was an unused substitute at the weekend as Uruguay threw away a first-half lead in the 3-1 defeat to Costa Rica but he is now ready to face England.

Scoring 82 goals for Liverpool since joining in 2011, the England team will be all too aware how dangerous the 27-year-old striker is, but Suarez has played down his role.

He told Uruguayan publication Ovación Digital: "I have been training for a few days with the team and I am 100% ready, I now only need time on the pitch and to play the game.

"There is not one player that is going to be the saviour. We all have to work together to carry on."

With five of Roy Hodgson's starting 11 against Italy being members of the Liverpool team and the rest from other Premier League clubs, Suarez feels confident he knows how to exploit England's weaknesses.

He has also thanked his club for not interfering and allowing his national side to take care of his injury.

He continued: "There was never a moment when Liverpool said to me 'don't play'. The club have complete trust in Uruguay's team.

"I know all the English national-team players, both because they are team-mates 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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
