Liverpool star Suarez thanks the men who got him fit on Twitter

Liverpool and Uruguay star Luis Suarez has thanked the medical team with Uruguay who got him fit to beat England.

England are out of the World Cup, no thanks to the man voted the best player in our very own domestic league last season. Luis Suarez scored twice for Uruguay against England earlier in the week which, couple with Costa Rica's win against Italy, saw Roy Hodgson's men bow out the competition after just two games.

Suarez revelled in victory, but this was not how it was supposed to be. Suarez was supposed to be injured.

He has only just returned to full training after undergoing surgery on his knee for a meniscus injury. The thought of Suarez playing against England when Paul Dummett, who obviously forgot his Welsh heritage for a moment, chopped him down in the final game of the season against Newcastle United was fanciful. Yet he did play, and he sent us packing.

That is due, in no small part to the magnificent medical team his nation employs - including Walter Ferreira, the country's head physiotherapist.

Suarez has now posted a Tweet on his Twitter page thanking Walter and his staff for their hard work in getting him fit for the crunch game with England. And he owes Ferreira a lot, hence why he ran straight to the 63-year-old after scoring. Because incredibly the physio halted his own cancer treatment to help Suarez get back up to speed.

Suarez will forever remain in Ferreira's debt and now he will hope to do the job against Italy - so that Ferreira's sacrifice is not in vein.

Here is the Tweet:
