2014 World Cup Update: Group D

2014 World Cup Update: Group D

Uruguay

Uruguay’s talismanic striker, Luis Suarez undergoes a tripe shift during training in an attempt to expedite his recovery.

 

Suarez, who went through a knee surgery, was previously in doubt of participating into Uruguay’s world cup matches. However, with the determination he has shown, it is evident that the poacher is on his way to recovery.

 

Should Suarez continues to show progress, there is a possibility for him to be in the squad’s starting XI.  Uruguay’s head honcho, Oscar Tabarez may also give him a little more time to rest and use him as a substitute to prevent any incident that may expose him to damaging his knee again.

 

Italy

The 2014 World Cup has just began, but the “maestro” of Italian football, Andrea Pirlo announced that he will leave international football after the ongoing tournament.

 

Already in his mid-30s, Pirlo disclosed that he is already “old” and needs to give way for younger players to shine and represent the country in the said tournament.

 

Nevertheless, after announcing his decision to retire, the renowned playmaker gave a “subtle warning” to their initial group opponent, England. He stressed that while the Three Lions have shown some improvements, the Gli Azzurri knows how to handle them well.

 

Costa Rica

Reports have confirmed that midfielder David Myrie shall replace wing back Heiner Mora.

 

According to medical reports, Mora suffered a fractured right heel in a friendly against Ireland. Costa Rica’s last pre-world cup friendly ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

 

England

Despite risks of suffering stomach cramps and nausea, England’s head honcho, Roy Hodgson administered anti-malaria tablets to his squad.

 

Hodgson explained that he would rather have a player experiencing cramps than a player who is down with the said disease. Just like what the renowned saying goes: prevention is better than cure.
