FORTALEZA, Brazil, June 14 (Reuters) - Uruguay striker Luis Suarez, who has been recovering from surgery, was named among the substitutes for their World Cup Group D clash against Costa Rica on Saturday.

Coach Oscar Tabarez stuck to the starting 11 he had announced on Friday with Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan up front. He has also selected Christian Stuani over the more experienced Gaston Ramirez in midfield.

Cristian Gamboa will start at right back for Costa Rica after Heiner Mora broke his heel in training this week and withdrew from the squad. (Reporting by Gideon Long; Editing by Ken Ferris)
