Uruguay forward Luis Suarez said he was "used to playing in different conditions" and was not worried about the hot weather anticipated in Sochi when his team plays their round of 16 World Cup match against Portugal.
“Maybe tomorrow will really be very hot and humid," Suarez said.
"Yes, it is not easy for the players, it is hard to breath, [your] mouth gets dry. Maybe, the temperature will go down, maybe, they say, it will rain. Overall, after all these years I am used to playing in different conditions."
The FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russia.
