Luis Suarez looks certain to sit out Uruguay's World Cup Group D opener against Costa Rica Saturday but in Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan, the South Americans will still boast a formidable attacking partnership.The Liverpool striker was sensational in the English Premier League last season, scoring 31 goals in 33 appearances, way more than any other player.Cavani comes to Brazil after a successful first season at Paris St. Germain and while Forlan's star has faded somewhat since the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, he still has the intelligence and dead ball expertise to unlock any defense.The Ticos conceded fewer goals than any other team in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers, averaging well under one goal a game to finish as runners-up to the United States.
