Liverpool star Luis Suarez ready to break hearts again

Suarez Free Kick

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez will be looking to take his country Uruguay to the round of 16 of the World Cup at the expense of Italy on Tuesday.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez dashed England's dreams of reaching the next stage of the World Cup after the Liverpool star bagged a brace to send the Three Lions packing their bags.

The 27-year-old had just recovered from knee surgery, yet he proved all those who had questioned his fitness wrong, as the former Ajax forward played almost the entire game and scored twice.

Uruguay now face Italy on Tuesday in their final Group D clash, which is a ‘winner-takes-all’ encounter.

The South Americans had a terrible start to the tournament with a 3-1 defeat to Costa Rica, who have surprised many by sealing their place in the round of 16.

Suarez did not feature in that encounter, but he started the clash against England. Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez will be looking to deploy the same tactics against Italy come Tuesday: unleash Suarez.

Italy legend Andrea Pirlo has been singled out as the threat that Uruguay need to combat. Pirlo was the architect who orchestrated the attacks against England that won them the game.

However, Uruguay will be encouraged by how Costa Rica closed down the veteran midfielder and shut him out of the game as best as they could.

Tuesday's fixture will prove to be quite a clash. Can Suarez and his teammates heap more misery on European teams?
