The Uruguayan FA has today confirmed that their star striker, Luis Suarez, would not be able to play against Brazil. The Barcelona legend has tested positive for COVID-19 a day before Uruguay’s clash against the South American champions.
Not only is Suarez missing a chance to play against his friend Neymar, but it also jeopardises his chance to play against Barcelona on the 21st of November. The Uruguayan has been in fine form this year, scoring five goals and three in his previous three outings.
While everyone wishes a speedy recovery to Suarez, this comes at perfect timing for the Catalan club. The Catalan giants will not face an in-form striker and will have to deal with one headache less. However, it is quite a sad one for Culés. They will not be able to reunite with their former legend. Lionel Messi, Suarez’s best friend, will surely feel for his former teammate.
