Luis Suarez declares fitness for Uruguay's clash with England

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez declares his fitness ahead of the meeting with England on Thursday.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has stated that he will be "100%" for their meeting with England on Thursday in the World Cup.

The Liverpool striker underwent knee surgery last month and hasn't played since the final day of last season, but the La Celeste forward has claimed that he will be raring to go against the Three Lions.

"My feeling is very good," Suarez told BBC Sport.

"The operation, I know the process, and every day is different. The medical staff, they work very well and I'm trying my best to stay fit for the game.

"I know that in the first game [against Costa Rica] it was physical, but I am 100% for the second game."

Suarez scored 31 goals for Liverpool last season en route to winning the PFA and LMA Player of the Season awards.
