thumbnail Hello,

The Uruguay star seems to make headlines on a regular basis, both good and bad, but there is no denying he is key to their hopes of having a good World Cup

There are many stars in the Uruguay team but the brightest of them all is Luis Suarez. The likes of Edinson Cavani, Diego Godin and Fernando Muslera are crucial, but Suarez is the one that transforms the South American side into one capable of matching anyone on their day.

When he sat out their World Cup opener against Costa Rica, Uruguay slumped to a shock 3-1 loss despite taking the lead. They looked lacklustre and lost without their talisman and Player of Passion, who couldn't come off the bench despite being named on it.

But he returned in time to start against England in their second Group D game and immediately made a world of difference. Suarez was clearly half-fit and did not do much for most of the game, but drew upon his Inner Steel when it mattered most.The first time, his crafty run took out his marker and generated enough room for him to power a superb header beyond Joe Hart to give Uruguay the lead. The second, he reacted quickest to an errant back-header to emphatically slam home the winner and revive La Celeste's hopes of qualifying.

Suarez again started the final game against Italy and tormented their defence, only to be denied twice by the brilliance of goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. He played his part as Uruguay prevailed 1-0 to seal progress to the Round of 16 and for his vital contributions, is deservedly the Gillette Player of Steel for Group C.

In football, just as in shaving, the best outcome is determined by precision. When the smallest details make the biggest difference between winning and losing, a mental and physical toughness is needed – a true show of Inner Steel. For football fans who are driven by their passion and their own inner steel, Gillette introduces the Special Edition Brazil Team Razor - available at stores nationwide now for a limited time only.
