England Fearful of Saurez

England defenders will not be looking forward to facing Liverpool goal-getter Luis Saurez after Uruguay and England were drawn together in Group D of next year’s World Cup.

Suarez has scored 14 Premier League goals in 10 appearances so far this season, including four against Norwich City and the controversial Uruguayan will come up against some familiar faces.

"I would have thought that, when the World Cup draw was made, there were a few English defenders thinking: 'Oh no, I've got to play him again - it's bad enough twice during the season'," he told Liverpool's official website.

"You couldn't write the script. People glossed over the second goal he scored against Norwich because of the brilliance of the other three but the technique for the second goal was fantastic as well.”

"Luis has been fantastic. He's a great entertainer and he's a humble guy. He's somebody that really enjoys working in training - he is never a problem in training - and he's fantastic on the pitch,” he added.

"It's a real joy to see him play sometimes. The goals he has scored have been hugely influential on the position that Liverpool are holding in the league at the moment [second place]."
