Uruguay striker Luis Suarez pushed his body to the very limits in last Thursday's match against England but said his knee was in "perfect condition" ahead of the must-win World Cup clash against Italy.In a dazzling display of marksmanship, Suarez scored both goals in the 2-0 defeat of England having missed Uruguay's opening defeat to Costa Rica because of the knee surgery he underwent just before the tournament.Coach Oscar Tabarez said having even a partially fit Suarez in the side was vital for Uruguay, who reached the semi-finals in South Africa four years ago but will be going home if they fail to beat four-times champions Italy.Suarez, linked with a move to Barcelona from Liverpool by Spanish media overnight, was asked whether he was aiming to become the best player at the World Cup.
