Luis Suarez Uruguay

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez starts for Uruguay against Italy.

Italy: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Darmian, Verratti, Pirlo, Marchisio, De Sciglio; Balotelli, Immobile

Uruguay: Muslera, Caceres, Gimenez, Godin, A.Pereira, Gonzalez, Arevalo Rios, Rodriguez, Lodeiro, Cavani, Suarez

Italy were poor against Costa Rica and will be looking for a big reaction heading into this game.

They have plenty of quality all over their midfield and attack with the likes of Arsenal linked Mario Balotelli up front and Italian legend Andrea Pirlo pulling the strings in the middle of the team.

Uruguay will be hoping Liverpool striker Luis Suarez can cash in along the same lines as he did against England.

He doesn’t appear to have suffered any setbacks following the England game relating to his knee and will be important for the Uruguayans for as long as they’re in the competition.

Manchester United and Chelsea linked Edinson Cavani is also going to be an important player for Uruguay over the rest of the tournament.

Uruguay could be considered the slight favourites for this match because they have the momentum, going into the match off the back of a win whereas Italy are looking to react after a defeat.
