Suarez returns

Ap
Thursday, June 19, 2014

RIO DE JANEIRO - With their World Cup fates already in jeopardy, Uruguay and England will be counting on their unpredictable strikers to revive their campaigns in Sao Paulo on Friday.

Luis Suarez is preparing to return from Uruguay's treatment room and hoping his scoring abilities have not been impeded by injury.

Wayne Rooney, England's one-time teenage prodigy, will be seeking to prove his critics wrong by finally scoring at the pinnacle of international football.

Uruguay and England desperately need their star forwards to deliver after both teams made a losing start to their World Cup campaigns.

England was seen as a gallant loser in Group D on Sunday, showing a real willingness to attack but still going down 2-1 to Italy.
