SAO PAULO (AP) — Luis Suarez is returning from a month-long injury layoff to start for Uruguay against an unchanged England at the World Cup on surgery.

The Liverpool striker hasn't played a match since featuring in the Premier League on May 11, and undergoing surgery on his left knee 11 days later. Suarez, who scored a league-leading 31 goals in England last season, will lead the strike force with Edinson Cavani as Diego Forlan drops to the bench.

Uruguay lost its opening match in Group D against Costa Rica, as did England against Italy on Saturday.

Although England is unchanged from the team that lost 2-1 to Italy, Wayne Rooney is set to be deployed in a central role.


Uruguay: Fernando Muslera, Martin Caceres, Jose Maria Gimenez, Diego Godin, Alvaro Pereira, Alvaro Gonzalez, Egidio Arevalo Rios, Nicolas Lodeiro, Cristian Rodriguez, Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez.

England: Joe Hart, Glen Johnson, Gary Cahill, Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Wayne Rooney, Raheem Sterling, Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge.
