England’s World Cup tormentor loves pastries

Luis Suarez is the man of the moment and it looks like he has put an end to England’s World Cup dreams - but did you know he is from a bakery background?

His family run a bakery in Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, and according to Suarez’s brother the 27-year-old striker has a weakness for pastries.

Brother Maxi told the Evening Standard: “Luis has a privacy in England he doesn’t have here. Lots of people come into the bakery asking about him. But England doesn’t have these kinds of petiscos, so when he comes here he takes everything.”

So now we know what Roy needs to do to make sure that Italy beat the South Americans when they meet - load up on the petiscos.
