Luis Suarez will be ready to play in Uruguay's World Cup opener against Costa Rica on June 14, according to a report from the Associated Press. 

The 27-year-old Liverpool forward had keyhole surgery on his left knee 10 days ago but is already practicing with the national team twice a day. According to the AP, his doctor said that Suarez is on the team's final roster and will be playing for Uruguay at the start of the tournament.

Suarez scored 31 goals for Liverpool this past season, helping the Reds to a second-place finish in the Premier League and winning the PFA Player of the Year award in the process.

Uruguay is in Group D with England, Costa Rica and Italy. The World Cup kicks off in Brazil on June 12.
