World Cup 2014: Luis Suarez returns to training

Luis Suarez will return to training at Uruguay’s Montevideo training camp on Monday just 11 days after undergoing a knee operation.

The Liverpool striker had surgery on the meniscus cartilage after suffering the injury during the Reds’ final Premier League match of the season against Newcastle United on 11 May.

The 26-year-old is not expected to take part in the full session, as Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez is determined not to rush the striker back before he is ready.
“Luis will join up with the rest of the squad this week and depending on how his knee responds we will see how soon we can count on him to start a match,” Tabarez said.
Tabarez hopes that Suarez will be fit for Uruguay’s second match of the World Cup, against England on 19 June, but the 31-goal Golden Boot winner is unlikely to be fit for Uruguay’s opener against Costa Rica five days earlier.
“People are saying ‘[Diego] Forlan will replace Suarez’ but nothing is decided. We will not decide the eleven to face Costa Rica until the day before the game,” Tabarez said.
