Forlan and Suarez hand Uruguay fitness boost

The condition of the star strikers is reported to be improving after illness and injury concerns as Los Charrúas prepare to open their World Cup campaign, according to Sky Sports.

Diego Forlan had been suffering with a stomach complaint which forced him to miss training on Wednesday. However, he returned to the field yesterday and is thought to be in contention as Uruguay face Costa Rica in Fortaleza tomorrow.


The veteran striker currently plays with Cerezo Osaka in Japan, and at the age of 35 this could be his last opportunity to shine on the biggest stage. He was named player of the tournament in 2010 as Uruguay finished fourth at the World Cup in South Africa.


Forlan was the first Uruguayan to rack up 100 caps for his country, and was for a time their leading scorer as well, until he was overtaken last year by Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.


Suarez is unlikely to play against the Costa Ricans, although he has now returned to training following knee surgery in May. Uruguay will monitor his fitness carefully, and have not set any definite deadlines for his return.


Head coach Oscar Tabarez said: "I couldn't say when we will be able to have Suarez available. We have our expectations but until we do more tests, he will not play."


Uruguay’s second match is on 19th June against England.
