Suarez Might Miss World Cup

Luis Suarez has reportedly damaged his meniscus in his knee on Wednesday and will undergo a minor surgery on Thursday.

This injury usually keeps players out for four to six weeks (without recovery time) and threatens Suarez’ World Cup participation.

Uruguayan journalist, Martin Charquero reported the news via Twitter, but predicts Suarez could return in time for the tournament in Brazil.

Uruguay’s World Cup campaign starts on June 14 against Costa Rica, just over three weeks away.

Only five days later, Uruguay will face England and if the injury is as serious as feared, he might miss this crucial match.

Yesterday the Barclays Premier League Player of the Year spoke about his desire to ‘hurt’ the Three Lions.

“I think they (England) have very good players that are in form and that are part of the big teams,” he said as quoyed byt the Daily Star.

“Most of the players come from the big names of the Premier League and that means a lot.

“But we also know that they have some troubles and we know we can hurt them.”

How much of a blow would Suarez' absence be for Uruguay's World Cup campaign? Have your say in the comment section below.
