The in-form Liverpool striker underwent keyhole surgery on May 22 after damaging the meniscus in his left knee and immediately doubts were cast on whether he would be fit for the World Cup.

However, Uruguay remain cautiously optimistic that Suarez, who is said to be progressing well following the operation, will be able to feature in Brazil and on Saturday the 27-year-old was confirmed in coach Oscar Tabarez's squad for the finals.

It remains to be seen when Suarez will be able to return to action, though, with Uruguay kicking off their World Cup campaign against Costa Rica in just over two weeks.

England and Italy are the other two teams in a tough-looking Group D.

The two players who have been cut from Tabarez's 25-man provisional squad are Palmeiras midfielder Sebastian Eguren and Lanus defender Alejandro Silva.

Uruguay squad for World Cup: Fernando Muslera, Martin Silva, Rodrigo Munoz; Diego Lugano, Diego Godin, Jose Maria Gimenez, Martin Caceres, Maximiliano Pereira, Jorge Fucile, Sebastian Coates; Egidio Arevalo-Rios, Walter Gargano, Diego Perez, Alvaro Gonzalez, Alvaro Pereira, Cristian Rodriguez, Gaston Ramirez, Nicolas Lodeiro; Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez, Diego Forlan, Abel Hernandez, Christian Stuani.

Could be worse. They may lose to a weakened Uruguayan team.
