Uruguay are handed a major boost ahead of their meeting with Argentina as Barcelona have given Luis Suarez the green light to feature after recovering from injury.

Luis Suarez has been given the green light by club side Barcelona to feature in Uruguay's crucial World Cup qualifier against Argentina in the early hours of Friday morning.

The 30-year-old has missed the opening fortnight of the Catalan giants' league campaign due to a knee injury picked up in the second leg of their Supercopa de Espana defeat to Real Madrid.

Suarez was initially expected to miss around a month of action, but after making a quicker-than-expected recovery he has been given permission to play against both Argentina and Paraguay.

"Luis Suarez has been given the all-clear on Thursday as he completes his recovery from the injury to his right knee," a Barcelona statement read. "The club's medical services and the Uruguayan Football Association worked together to help the striker get match-fit again."

Suarez could come up against Barca teammates Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano, with Uruguay currently one point adrift of an automatic qualification berth for Russia 2018.
