Sete Lagoas: Veteran Uruguay striker Diego Forlan was back in training on Thursday following a stomach bug that kept him off the practice pitch the day before.
The 35-year-old had stayed in the gym and missed both training sessions of Uruguay on Wednesday after waking up with a “digestive problem”, the team’s press office said.
Forlan took part in stretching exercises alongside his teammates during the 15 minutes training at the Sete Lagoas Stadium.
Fellow striker Luis Suarez also trained, but is not expected to be fit for Saturday’s opener against Costa Rica. Suarez, 27, is struggling to recover from a knee operation he underwent on May 22 for a meniscus problem. (AGENCIES)
