Uruguayan from up close because he added this: “But I’m sure he’s chomping at the bit to be ready and fit for the game.”

The chomping analogy is correct. For the fairweather football fan who didn’t concern himself with any of the Liverpool striker’s sensational collection of 31 goals in the English Premier League this season, Suarez is renowned for just three equally ghastly acts.

The first, taking a bite off Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, which caused him a 10-match suspension. The second, allegedly racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra, which slapped him with another six-match ban.

And finally, for that goal-saving hand-ball in the dying minutes of the match against Ghana that denied the African nation their rightful spot in semifinals of South Africa ‘10.

The last act must tell you something about his character. Suarez is not afraid to sacrifice himself for a cause. And, going by their terrible threats, neither are his countrymen.
