OFFICIAL: Luis Suárez named in Uruguay squad for October World Cup Qualifiers

The best striker on Earth will represent his nation again

The best striker in world football will represent his nation again.

Barcelona superstar Luis Suárez has been called up by national team manager Óscar Tabárez to represent Uruguay in the next two South American World Cup Qualifying matches against Venezuela (Oct. 6) and Colombia (Oct. 11) next month. Luisito has been in fantastic form in the calendar year 2016, and he hopes to maintain his level of play for the top seeded South American team at the Qualifiers. The best four will go to Russia, and Suárez' side is in great position to book a place themselves.

Suárez missed the first four rounds of the Qualifiers thanks to an eight-game ban he received for that infamous bite on Giorgio Chiellini in the 2014 World Cup. Ever since returning to Uruguay, Luisito has been exceptional, with two goals and three assists in the four games he's played, sharing the spotlight with his teammate and the top scorer in the Qualifiers, Edinson Cavani.
