Suarez admits World Cup banter flying with Liverpool pal Gerrard

Luis Suarez admits the banter has been flying at Liverpool's training ground since the World Cup draw.

After the World Cup draw, Suarez revealed Steven Gerrard texted joking that England were "lucky" to face Uruguay.

Banter aside, Suarez knows how tough it will be to reach the knockout stages of the summer extravaganza.

He said: "Before the draw I hoped we would not face England. But when it said we would face England it was unbelievable for me.

"Stevie sent a message to me saying 'we are so lucky', and we were laughing because it's so funny.

"But now we are concentrating on the league and Liverpool. I think it's more difficult at the World Cup, it will be very, very difficult.

"Italy, Uruguay, England: they all have good players.

"But I think in the World Cup if you want to win, then in every game you must concentrate, and you must focus against every country."
