Suarez Mocks England

Uruguay forward, Luis Suarez, says he is fit to play and ready to exploit England’s ‘defensive weaknesses’.

Suarez has confirmed he is ready to face England on Thursday and claims his inside knowledge about Roy Hodgson’s players will help him.

“I know all the players in the England team, either as team-mates at Liverpool or as rivals at other clubs in the Premier League,” Suarez said as quote by the Guardian.

“They have defensive weaknesses that we can exploit but I’m not going to tell the media how we will do so.

“We have to play our own way, with our own style, if we are going to progress. But trust in us. No one wants us to go forward in the tournament more than we do as a team.”

The Premier League Player of the Season revealed he is 100 percent fit to play England in the vital Group D clash after seeing his side losing 3-1 to Costa Rica.

“I was looking forward to getting involved and I wanted to help (against Costa Rica) but maybe it was better I didn’t because fate could have played a trick on me and set me back again,” Suárez added.

“But I’ve done everything I had to do. I haven’t missed a day of recovery time and I’m 100% fit, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.

“I’m training with the team again and I feel in good condition. I never lost the joy and the desire and I never thought I was going to lose out on playing in the World Cup because of injury.

Suarez trained with his teammates on Monday, but his national team coach, Oscar Tabarez, refused to say whether he would definitely start against England.

"It is a possibility, I can say no more,'' said Tabarez.

Both sides have lost their respective opening game and cannot afford to lose the Group D clash on Thursday.
