Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez was mobbed as he was carried by wheelchair to an ambulance last night. He faces a fight to recover from surgery on a knee injury before the South American nation faces England in the World Cup.
It was initially feared that he would be sidelined in Brazil, with recovery from surgery expected to take months rather than weeks. But Suarez hopes to defy the odds to make the tournament.
