The two forwards will come face to face in the summer’s World Cup finals when England meet Uruguay in Sao Paulo, Brazil on June 19th.
Sterling could also start for England against the Uruguayan’s after earning a re-call to Roy Hodgson’s squad for the 1-0 victory over Denmark last week.
“I didn’t even known we had drawn Uruguay until I went in for treatment on my ankle at the training ground and Sebastian Coates told me,” Sturridge was quoted in the Mirror as saying.
“Next day I saw Luis, and we had a joke about it, but it will be great to play against him because he’s a world-class player and a great friend of mine.
“When the season finishes, I’m going to steal all his boots and his shinpads!”
Sturridge says he is delighted to be playing with so many of his club teammates at international level, with five Reds starting last week’s game at Wembley.
He added, “It’s a good sign for Liverpool that we had five players in England’s starting line-up last week.
“I’ve grown up with Jordan Henderson in international age groups, Raheem Sterling is like a little brother and I’m very close to him, Glen Johnson is a top-class player and then there’s James Bond… Stevie has got the lot, hasn’t he?
“If ever there was a player who deserved to finish his career with a Premier League winner’s medal or a World Cup winner’s medal it’s Steve Gerrard.”
Sturridge was named the Premier League player of the month for the second time this season on Friday.
Both Sturridge and Suarez will be hungry for goals this weekend when Liverpool travel to arch rivals Manchester United for Sunday afternoon’s mouth-watering clash. Victory could see Liverpool‘s odds for them to clinch the title dramatically shorten.
