Football News – Suarez Also Cannot Play for Uruguay
Striker Suarez started for Atletico Madrid for the first time this season. And it was he who equalized for Diego Simeone’s men after Villareal went up with the initial lead.
The Atletico Madrid forward also recorded his eighth goal involvement in 13 games against Villarreal.
However, 14 minutes later, Suarez had to quit the pitch after complaining of pain in his left knee.
Following scans in Spain, Atletico Madrid discovered moderate swelling in Suarez’s knee.
And the club informed that the 34-year-old will miss the World Cup qualifiers for Uruguay against Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador.
Now, the former Barcelona forward is expected to receive additional treatment throughout the week.
But it is unclear whether he will be able to play against Espanyol on September 12 either.
Fortunately for the reigning La Liga champions, Atletico signed Matheus Cunha in late August as one of their football transfers.
Besides this summer transfer window catch, Angel Correa has been in excellent form. He has scored three goals in his first three games of the 2021-22 season.
However, despite Atletico being safe, with plenty of attacking options, Uruguay are facing a striking crisis. Two of their top strikers have withdrawn from participation in the qualifiers in this international upcoming break.
