Uruguay marksman Luis Suarez well on the road to recovery following knee surgery, reports Sky Sports.

Suarez posted a video via Twitter in which he thanked fans for their support and assured the world that his knee was getting better. He was also seen partaking in a training session in which he appeared to be moving normally.

The Liverpool striker was the victim of a heavy challenge in his club’s final Premier League game of the season against Newcastle United, and a few days later broke down in training and had to be helped off.

Surgery on his knee cartilage was subsequently required, but less than four weeks later he is back in training, responding well and feeling positive about his prospects. However, it is still not certain when the 27-year-old will be ready to play again.

His national coach Oscar Tabarez said: "He's working full out on his physical fitness. As we have no set deadlines, I don't know if we'll have him for the first match, for the second, for the third. If it were up to me, Suarez would play tomorrow."

Uruguay open their World Cup campaign on Saturday against Group D minnows Costa Rica before going on to face England and then Italy.

Suarez is his country’s all-time leading scorer with 38 goals in 77 appearances, and as such is vital to their chances of progress in the tournament.
