Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani says that the team feel "discouraged" following teammate Luis Suarez's knee injury.

Edinson Cavani has admitted that Uruguay have been "discouraged" following Luis Suarez's injury ahead of this summer's World Cup.

The Liverpool striker, who scored 31 goals in the Premier League this season, underwent knee surgery last week, which could prevent him from playing in the Brazil tournament.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker told El Pais: "We're all a bit discouraged by what happened. Injuries are always ugly and more so at this time.

"I think we have to leave him alone now so he can have a good recovery with no anxiety on him. We wish he can join us as soon as possible."

Uruguay begin their World Cup campaign against Costa Rica on June 14.
