Suarez Still Doubtful For England Clash

Uruguay boss, Oscar Tabarez, admitted there is no guarantee that striker Luis Suarez will be fit for their clash against England.
 
Suarez was an unused substitute as they defeated 3-1 by Costa Rica in their World Cup opener on Saturday.
 
However, the Uruguay boss says that the Liverpool striker has to reach a certain fitness level if he is to feature against the Three Lions.
 
"Luis Suarez is no longer injured, because he wouldn't have been a substitute if he was," said Tabarez
 
"He has gone through the phases that we have foreseen in his recovery and we will have to see if he can find fitness.
 
"As we said from the beginning, if he meets the challenges, we will see how he can get into the team - and at which point.
 
"For us, he is a key player. He has great potential and has a lot to contribute to the team.
 
"We need him to reach a point where he can play in a match. It was he who demanded to be on the bench, not watching from the stands. It would have been very difficult for him to play though.
 
While Tabarez said he warned his side about Costa Rica, especially after what happened to Spain.
 
"Neither team can believe that there are things that cannot happen. I don't know what Costa Rica's limit is but today they played well.
 
"They were tactically better than us, which reflects well on their coach and players. When they took the lead, they gave us space and let us play where we couldn't do them any harm.
 
"Now we're going to try and get back on track against England."
