The Liverpool striker had surgery on a knee injury on Thursday but he is confident he will be fit to make his mark in Brazil

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has allayed fears he could miss the World Cup following knee surgery and insists he will be fit for this summer's tournament in Brazil.

The Liverpool hitman went under the knife to correct a meniscus injury on Thursday but the Uruguayan Football Association are confident "he is not ruled out".

Suarez posted a message on Twitter later that day to thank fans for their good-will messages, and on Saturday afternoon he reiterated his determination to turn out for his country in Brazil.


Uruaguy kick off their World Cup against Costa Rica on June 14, before playing England five days later and Italy five days after that.
