SPAIN – Uruguay and Atletico Madrid striker, Luis Suarez, has tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Uruguayan Football Association.
This news means Suarez will miss their World Cup qualifier against Brazil on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old will also definitely miss the LaLiga clash against his former club Barcelona on Saturday.
“The Uruguayan football association reports that swab tests have been performed on all members of the National Team, and the players Luis Suarez and Rodrigo Munoz and team official Matias Faral have tested positive for COVID-19, while the other members of the party have tested negative,” the AUF said in a statement.
“The three are all in good health and the pertinent measures have been implemented.”
The tests were carried out after Matias Vina tested positive a day earlier.
Suarez will also sit out Atletico Madrid’s Champions League match with Lokomotiv Moscow on November 25 and is a doubt for their LaLiga game with Valencia.
