Uruguay takes on Costa Rica in the first match of Group D today at Estadio Castelao, Fortaleza. Group D, featuring teams like Uruguay, Costa Rica, England and Italy is being termed by  many as the Group of Death of the 2014 World Cup. Hence, all the matches of this group will carry equal importance and no match can be considered as a one sided affair.

The very aggressive Uruguay take on the impressive Costa Rica today. However, what will be worrying for Uruguay will be the injury to their start player Luis Suarez. If reports are to be believed, Uruguay will not risk the fitness of Suarez and he is likely to be benched today. Hence, Uruguay are most likely to be led by 2010 Golden Ball winner Diego Forlan or Edison Cavani. Costa Rica, on the other hand will start with Campbell and Bryan Ruiz in the forward line up. It will be an enthralling game and you must not miss this high profile encounter.
