Golden Boot Contender

Golden Boot Contenders: Luis Suarez

In this week’s Golden Boot Contenders feature Soccer Laduma looks at Uruguay international Luis Suarez.

The 27-year-old is facing a fitness race to recover from his recent injury for Brazil, but if fit he is one of the players who can slice through every defence in the world.

Suarez proved his worth for Liverpool with 31 goals this season which earned him the Premier League Golden Boot and the shared Golden Shoe in Europe. He was named the PFA's and WFA's Player of the Year and also won the official Barkley's Player of the Season award.Overall he has scored 204 club goals for Groningen, Ajax Amsterdam and Liverpool.

He made is Uruguay debut in February 2007 and played an important role in his country’s impressive World Cup campaign in 2010, scoring three goals. 

At the 2011 Copa America, Suarez scored four goals for his country as they won their fifteenth Copa America and was named the Player of the Tournament.

On 23 June 2013, he became Uruguay’s all-time record goal-scorer with 35 goals to which he added three more up to date.

His fine performances for Liverpool this season almost made his controversial past forgotten, although African’s will never forgive him for denying Ghana the extra-time goal, which would have seen them reach the semi-final.

However, seldom has a player combined so much desire, work rate and skills in one person.

If Suarez can win the fitness battle, he is definitely on the list to win the Golden Boot in Brazil.
