Joe Hart says England will be well-equipped to stop Luis Suarez when they take on Uruguay at the World Cup in Brazil.

Roy Hodgson’s men take on Suarez’s side in their second Group D game on 19 June after their opener against Italy on Saturday.

And Three Lions goalkeeper Hart is sure that the five Liverpool players in the England squad will help spread the word on how to stop the striker.

“The fact we know Suarez means we know that he’ll cause trouble for us,” Hart said.

“There’ll be some familiarity, and the Liverpool players will know him a lot better. I’m sure they’ll give us their input on the different ways of stopping him.”

Meanwhile, Uruguay head coach Oscar Tabarez has revealed that Suarez is progressing well following his knee surgery.

“He’s responding very well and his spirits couldn’t be better,” said Tabarez. “He’s working full out on his physical fitness.

“As we have no set deadlines, I don’t know if we’ll have him for the first match, for the second, for the third. If it were up to me, Suarez would play tomorrow.”
