with the latter with a great run and sets up Rooney, who cannot miss!:
Lambert on for England now
85 GOAL!!!! And there it is! Suarez buries a thunderous shot past Hart. What a finish!
83 – Now Uruguay going all guns blazing in serach of the winner. They

65 – Another chance as Sturridge looks to play in Rooney, but his cross is too close to the keeper and the danger is averted.
64 SUB – Sterling replaced by Barley
62 – WOW, Pareira takes an unintentional knee in the face from
Sterling. He looks lights out, but then gets up and is desperate to
continue. Thought he was down for the count. Tough man that….
59 – England desperate for a goal as Henderson (yes, he is playing) fires from distance, but it’s straight at the keeper.
55 – Great ball by Baines to Sturridge, who is inches away from beating the keeper to the ball.
54 – Muslera with a point-blank save to deny Rooney. Seems the ‘White Pele’ is destined not to score at a World Cup.
52 – BIG miss by Cavani, who is played in a beares down on Hart, but then puts it woefully wide.
50 Lucky escape for England as Suarez gets the ball on the edge of
the area and unmarked, but the Liverpool man with a rare, skewed shot.

43 – Good response by England as they pepper the Uruguay goal, but
the South Americans are standing strong and repell every attack.

38 GOAL!!!! Uruguay 1 (Suarez 38) England 0
36 – Scrappy game right now as neither team can string too many passes together. England still attacking from out wide.
31 CROSSBAR: England so close as Gerrard’s freekick
finds Rooney at the backpost. From almost under the crossbar, he heads
it into the woodwork. Should really have done better!
30 – Uruguay’s turn for silly mistakes as they concede two soft free-kicks close to their goal. Can England make it count?

From one such lapse in concentration the South Americans win a corner
and Cavani blasts a shot narrowly over.
25 – Nope, easy catch for Hart.
24 – Sterling with a silly foul that gives Uruguay a free-kick in a dangerous position. Will anything come of this?
Halfway through the first half and England will be happy with their
work so far, but for Jagielka’s lapse in concentration. Not many
clear-cut chances though.
17 – Lovely build-up play round the area by England finishes with Sturridge’s shot being deflected for a corner.
15 – Rodriguez with a pile-driver that beats Hart, but also the crossbar. But what rubbish defending by Jagielka!
14 – After a nervy start, England looking a lot more comfortable now.

goes directly for goal, but the keeper scrables and saves for another

to a more central role.
