Surgery on a knee injury threatened the Liverpool striker's involvement in the tournament, but the 27-year-old has returned to full training ahead of Thursday's crucial Group D encounter.

"I know all the players in the England squad, I know some of them because they are team-mates or rivals," Suarez told Uruguayan website Ovaciondigital.com.

"They have defensive deficiencies and we can take advantage of them."
