Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted that he is constantly scared of picking up an injury that would mean he misses the World Cup next summer, as reported by the Telegraph.

The Uruguayan has been in sensational form for the Reds this season and is the Premier League top scorer at present.

Suarez is constantly targeted by defenders who struggle to get the better of him, although the striker has often been criticised for his theatrics in and around the penalty area.

After seeing prominent stars such as Rademal Falcao and Theo Walcott pick up serious injuries ahead of the tournament in South America, Suarez is always worried that his dream could be over with one bad tackle.

“The truth is that I am scared of what happened to Falcao and Walcott,” Saurez said.

“But you live in the present and you always give your best for the club – you can’t be thinking about that all the time.

“It is a unique opportunity and we all want to be there, but I prefer to focus my mind on the English league. The moment to think about the national team will arrive later.”
