The striker could feature in the Group D showdown after missing the 3-1 defeat by Costa Rica as he continues his recovery from knee surgery.
I’m not really on texting terms with Luis at the moment
But his Liverpool team-mate, who scored England’s equaliser in Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Italy in Manaus, is keen for the Three Lions to show that they can beat the best.
“I hope he’s fit and we get to play the best Uruguay team possible,” said Sturridge. “We need to do a job – whether they have got Luis or not.
“It’s not just about Luis Suarez. Same for them against us. It’s a team game, not about individuals.
“I’m not really on texting terms with Luis at the moment. I don’t think Steven Gerrard, Glen Johnson or Jordan Henderson are either.
“He hasn’t asked me for any clues and I haven’t asked him. Whether they have Luis or not, we’ll play the same.
“I don’t think there’s any fears or anxieties, we are all excited.”
Suarez, who scored 31 Premier League goals as Liverpool finished second last season, underwent a minor knee operation on 22 May and was not risked in his country’s opening World Cup fixture.
Meanwhile, England boss Roy Hodgson called on his side to be more clinical in front of goal after their defeat by Italy.
“I think we have got to be a bit more ruthless,” said Hodgson. “Had we scored two or three goals [against Italy], I don’t think anybody could say “you were lucky there, you didn’t create many chances”.
“I thought our pace, allied with our clever play, got us into lots of goal-scoring opportunities.
“I thought the best way to go was to unleash some of our pacey players and put them on the back foot and I think we did for a lot of the time.”
