Mourinho previews Uruguay, England and the penalty threat of Suarez

Suarez Free Kick

Chelsea manager Jose is excited to watch the imminent World Cup match between England and Uruguay, with Luis Suarez a penalty danger.

England and Uruguay collide at the Arena de Sao Paulo in one hour and Jose Mourinho will be waiting with great anticipation as the Group D clash pits "two good teams" against the other and, because they both suffered defeats in the opening World Cup match of their respective campaigns, there is "big expectation."

Speaking to Yahoo, Chelsea manager Mourinho focused his preview on Liverpool asset Luis Suarez, who was consistently prolific for the Reds as the Merseyside club mounted a formidable challenge for the Premier League title, netting 31 goals and returning 12 assists.

"Suarez is a very important player for Uruguay," Jose said.

"Uruguay had a very unexpected result in the first match [a 3-1 loss to Costa Rica]. They are [in a similar situation] to England, one defeat 'goodbye!' and Suarez is coming back from injury.

"He is a South American who lives in Europe and plays in Europe for 11 months of the year and wants to be magic in his national team. When Suarez plays with [Edinson] Cavani there is understanding, aggresivity, intensity and this is high."

While Suarez's attacking threat will be a constant for defensive duo Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka, Mourinho believes the forward is always a danger from set-plays - both taking them… and winning them.

"This will for sure create problems for the English side. England will know all about it. He can find a penalty where no one else finds [one].

"It's a big match and I wait a lot - this is a lot like a knockout game. Whoever loses is out. Two good teams and there is big expectation."
