Dean Saunders: Luis Suarez will give England 'sleepless nights'

Former Liverpool forward Dean Saunders claims that Luis Suarez will give England's defence 'sleepless nights' when they meet Uruguay in the World Cup next month.

Former Liverpool striker Dean Saunders has tipped Luis Suarez to give England 'sleepless nights' when they play Uruguay in the World Cup.

The two teams will go head to head in Sao Paulo on June 18, and the former Wales international, who played for the Reds in the 1991-1992 season, has backed the Uruguayan forward to worry the Three Lions' defence in the run-up to the game.

"Unfortunately [for England], Uruguay will have Suarez playing for them," he told Sky Sports News. "So he might have an impact. I don't think anyone likes playing against him.

"He's going to go up against those centre-backs and they're not going to be sleeping the night before the game."

Suarez scored 31 Premier League goals last season.
