Uruguayan centre-back hopes to join Suarez in Brazil.
Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates hopes to be included in Uruguay’s World Cup squad this summer.
The 23-year-old, who has two years left to run on his contract at Anfield, is currently on loan at Nacional in his home country.
He has featured in just 12 Premier League matches since signing for Liverpool from Nacional in August 2011.
Coates suffered a serious knee injury while making his 13th senior international appearance for Uruguay in a 4-2 win over Japan in August 2013.
He subsequently missed the first half of the season, before being sent out on loan to his former club in order to rebuild his fitness.
Coates has made a good recovery and believes that he is in good enough shape to go to Brazil 2014 along with Reds teammate Luis Suarez.
“I hope to be in Brazil,” he told El Observador. “The manager [Oscar Tabarez] has talked to everyone who has been involved, so while the list is not announced, I have faith.”
Uruguay have been drawn in Group D along with Costa Rica, England and Italy.
