Up there as one of the most controversial characters in football history, Luis Suarez looks to return to World Cup football in 2014, provided Uruguay get him there. Last time out in South Africa he proved his villainous qualities as he prevented a Ghana winner crossing the line with his hands, only to watch the resulting penalty miss and celebrate wildly before going down the tunnel. The best odds on Suarez to be top scorer at the World Cup are with Paddy Power who offer 18/1.
Luis Suarez World Cup top scorer odds
The marmite of all footballers, Suarez has proved himself as one of the greatest strikers in the world at Liverpool and Ajax, scoring over 150 goals for the two clubs combined. Despite accusations of diving and suspensions for alleged racism, the 2012/13 season was his best season in England, finishing second to Robin van Persie in the Premier League scoring charts on 23 goals. In the most recent season his form has been even better, helping him to Player of the Year as well as top scorer, despite serving a lengthy suspension at the start of the season.
Bet on Luis Suarez at World Cup 2014
Suarez has a good record at major international competitions. He was integral to Uruguay’s surprise Copa America win in 2011, picking up the Player of the Tournament award for his performances. This year saw him overtake Diego Forlan as Uruguay’s all-time top goalscorer and his record at major international competitions is good.
Although Uruguay are yet to confirm their place for Brazil 2014, if they make it they will undoubtedly be a force to be reckoned with. Suarez will play a major part in that and has the ability and stats to back up a punt on him as tournament top scorer. A risk but one that would pay off if the best of Luis Suarez turns up.
