Suarez Free Kick

Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez is ready to make a comeback.

Barcelona star Luis Suarez is training with Uruguay ahead of his international comeback match.

The forward was handed a huge ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup, which has prevented him playing any competitive football for the La Liga side.

The bite helped convince Liverpool it was time to sell, doing for £75 million after his sensational 2013/14 campaign.

Suarez was originally banned from playing any type of match, only for FIFA to relent late in the summer and permit the attacker to feature in friendlies.

Uruguay face Saudi Arabia on Friday evening, before another exhibition with Oman days later, and Suarez is a certainty to feature at some stage.

He is due to return for Barcelona when his ban ends on October 25, in time to play in the El Clasico derby with Real Madrid.
