Suarez is grateful

Sao Paulo: The most important figure in Uruguay’s victory against England didn’t score any goals or provide any assists.

His name is Walter Ferreira. He’s the 62-year-old physiotherapist for the Uruguayan national team and he has spent the last month working on Luis Suarez’s left knee, despite himself suffering from non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer.

“There are people who know how crucial it was for me to have their support. If it wasn’t for him (Ferreira), I would not have been here today,” said Suarez.
