The Barcelona forward will also be hoping to avoid any controversies this time, having caused a stir in the last two World Cups.

Suarez handled on the line in extra-time to deny Ghana passage through to the semi-final in 2010 and received a nine-game ban from competitive internationals after biting Giorgio Chiellini in the 2014 tournament.

Uruguay kick-off their World Cup campaign against Egypt on Friday in Group A before meeting Saudi Arabia and tournament hosts Russia.
