Cahill Praises Superb Suarez

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has praised Luiz Suarez for his great performance in Thursday’s World Cup match, where he scored two goals to earn Uruguay a Round of 16 ticket.
Uruguay defeated England 2-1, and Cahill was sporting enough to credit the man who made the difference in the match, the sublime Suarez, who capped his return from injury with both of Uruguay’s goals.
The UEFA Champions League-winner has enjoyed many tussles with the striker from Salto in the past, but on this occasion the English came off second-best.
“He was one of the best players in the Premier League last season and he’s a great finisher”, continued Cahill. “He took his first goal really well. I thought his second goal was very fortunate, sometimes you need that bit of luck in the game and it fell for them today”.
Reaching the Round of 16 is now out of England’s hands. They must hope that Italy get six points from their next two encounters against Costa Rica and Uruguay and that they can defeat Los Ticos in Belo Horizonte, the scene of the Three Lions’ lowest ebb at the 1950 World Cup when they failed to qualify from the group stage.
In the meantime, Cahill and the England crew will be crossing their fingers and cheering for Gli Azzurri in Recife, as an Italian win would make their preparations for their final Group D game all the more meaningful.
“At the moment, it’s so hard to take”, said Cahill. “It’s going to be four very hard days for us to swallow. On the flip side, we hope Italy perform very well in the next two games and we get a win in the last one. That’s all we can do at this moment”.
