Suazo struggling for fitness

Honduran
striker David Suazo is struggling to be fit for his country’s first match at
the FIFA World Cup finals against Chile on Wednesday.

The
30-year-old Inter Milan striker, who has been sent out on loan in the past
three seasons to Benfica and Genoa, suffered an unspecified muscular injury but
said that he was back in training with his teammates, including Wilson Palacios
of Tottenham Hotspur (pictured) and was hopeful of making the Group H clash.

“My
recovery is coming along well,” said Suazo, who was given his break in European
football by present Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez when he was in charge of Serie
A side Cagliari in 1999.

“[Saturday]
I trained with my team-mates and each day I feel better. We are hoping that
from now to Wednesday I will be able to respond positively as regards my being
available to play and to how much of a role I can play.

“My
heart tells me that I would like to play in all the matches, to stretch myself
to the limit, but that depends on other factors,” said the striker, on whom
much hope is placed.
