Expected return: Suarez named in Uruguay’s final 23 for WC

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has been named in the final 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup tournament despite undergoing surgery in the last week.

The Liverpool forward is not expecting a return until after Uruguay’s first game in the finals against Costa Rica. Suarez could however be fit to face his club team-mates in the England national team on the 19 of June.

Goalkeepers: Fernando Muslera (Galatasaray), Martin Silva (Vasco da Gama), Rodrigo Munoz (Libertad)
