Luis Suarez Atletico, Madrid forward will miss Uruguay’s World Cup qualifiers next month because of a knee problem, the Spanish club said on Monday.




Suarez, who scored in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Villarreal before being substituted, had been due to join up with his national team for games against Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador.

“In the MRI scan undertaken by the player, a moderate edema was detected on the posterior part of his left knee,” Atletico said in a statement.




“The club’s medical services have informed the Uruguayan Federation and the player has been ruled out of joining up for the 2022 World Cup the qualifying matches.”

Suarez joins Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani on the withdrawal list after the Uruguayan Federation announced the forward’s call-up had been cancelled earlier on Monday.
