Luis Suarez has been exceptional for Inter Miami so far this season, which earned him a call-up for the provisional list of Uruguay for the Copa America 2024. Punto Penal reports that Suarez will indeed be selected in the final list of the Uruguay national team for the Copa America, which means he will be out next month for Inter Miami. Lionel Messi was certain to play in the Copa America with the Argentina national team, but many weren’t sure if Suarez was going to play in the tournament. Now, with him being called up, Inter Miami has a huge problem next month as they will be missing both their key players in the attack. Copa America runs from June 20th to July 14th, which means Suarez could miss up to seven MLS games. Inter Miami will have three away games during the Copa America, taking on Nashville SC, Charlotte FC, and Cincinnati FC.

Inter Miami has two games this week: on Wednesday against Atlanta United and on Saturday, June 1st, against St. Louis City. The St. Louis City game will likely be Suarez’s last match before he joins the Uruguay national team.
