Luis Suarez has been withdrawn from the Uruguay squad to face Italy in a friendly today (Tuesday) as a precaution after he picked up a knock during Uruguay’s 4-0 win over Chile where the Liverpool striker grabbed all four goals.

“Suarez took a knock against Chile and is not in the best shape,” said Uruguay coach Oscar Washington Tabarez. “He is getting better, but for the player, and for his club (Liverpool), it would make no sense to risk an injury, that is the way we see things.”

Now that is being sensible by the Uruguay coach and I wish all other national team coaches could be like that. Hopefully Suarez will be fit for the big game against Chelsea this coming weekend.
