England Vs Uruguay, Group D - Live Score

FRIDAY 20TH JUNE - 12:30AM (LOCAL) | ARENA CORINTHIANS, SAO PAULO

COMPLETED

Uruguay England

Uruguay: Ranked seventh, Uruguay has high hopes at the FIFA World Cup 2014. Twice world cup winners in 1930 and 1950 respectively, Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez would be keen to get his side back in the running back for the World Cup trophy. Placing safe bets on strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, Uruguay would look forward to ensuring a great run at the World Cup. They should be motivated by the status Giants of Football once given to them a few decades back.

England: One of the star-studded sides, England has always been burdened with huge expectations but failed to deliver somehow. Making their 14th World Cup appearance, England won the title way back in 1966. England Manager Roy Hodgson has high hopes with one of the most talented players in his side. With experienced players like Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in the side along with Wayne Rooney, the Three Lions would be keen on shedding the ‘unlucky tag’ in this World Cup 2014.

Commentary

(185 Mins)

That brings to a close the live commentary for tonights game. Uruguay are 2-1 winners over England. Thanks for reading. Well be back for Japan against Greece in one hour.

(184 Mins)

Uruguay are absolutely delighted with the win, however. They reached the semi-finals in South Africa 2010 and have every opportunity of repeating that result in 2014.

(182 Mins)

England defender Phil Jagielka says tonights result is gutting and says all of his England teammates are dejected.

(180 Mins)

Uruguay, led by their talismanic striker Suarez, have every chance to get to the last 16. Suarez was almost in tears when he scored, the difference maker tonight.

(-1058980043 Mins)

Not since 1954 have England failed to get past the group stages but theyre on the brink now. If Italy and Costa Rica draw tomorrow, its all over for them.

(177 Mins)

England arent completely down and out. There are still scenarios where they could reach the second round of the World Cup, but they must rely on Italy to beat Costa Rica tomorrow and Uruguay next week to have any chance.

(175 Mins)

But you can never count out Luis Suarez. One mistake by his Liverpool team-mate Gerrard and the Uruguayan striker was in and sent Uruguay into jubilation.

(174 Mins)

Rooney had given the Three Lions some hope after equalising late in the second half and it looked like England were surely on course to grab a winner.

(173 Mins)

In the end the difference was, who else, Luis Suarez. He came back into the side after being injured for the first match and scored two goals that leaves England on the brink of crashing out of the World Cup.

(172 Mins)

FULL TIME - And theres the whistle. Its over. Uruguay are 2-1 winners over England.

(171 Mins)

It comes to nothing. Muslera is taking his time over a goal kick.

(171 Mins)

And England have a corner in the last minute. Joe Hart has come forward. Last throw of the dice.

(169 Mins)

England have never lost their opening two games at a World Cup tournament but theyre on the brink here.

(169 Mins)

England are trying their hardest for an equaliser in these dying minutes. Gerrard fires from distance but it is far wide.

(167 Mins)

An over-hit cross from Gerrard misses Lambert and sails out for a goal-kick as Uruguay look to run down the clock.

(166 Mins)

There will be five added minutes.

(166 Mins)

Rooneys goal seemed to give England the initiative and it looked like there was only one winner but you can never count out Luis Suarez. Back in the side and on the score sheet.

(164 Mins)

In the aftermath of the goal Rickie Lambert has replaced Jordan Henderson and Sebastian Coates has come on for two goal hero Luis Suarez.

(163 Mins)

It looks to have knocked the wind out of Englands sails but Rooney fashions a free kick.

(161 Mins)

Out of nothing Suarez gives Uruguay the lead again. Gerrard is in-front of the defence and tries to head the ball back to his defenders but it has too much pace and falls nicely into the path of Suarez. He races clear of Gary Cahill, latches onto the ball and fires it across Hart into the top left corner.

(161 Mins)

Uruguay 2-1 England (Suarez)

(159 Mins)

Rooney kisses his hands and looks to the skies after scoring his first World Cup goal. He scored seven goals in six games in qualification but never before on the biggest stage in football.

(158 Mins)

Uruguay have a corner, it clears to Pereira who slides a ball through to Suarez on the left. But Cahill clears with a thumping header. The match is on a knife-edge at the moment, it could go to either side.

(156 Mins)

Substitution for Uruguay. Jorge Fucile replaces Alvaro Gonzalez.

(154 Mins)

Its all England now. Rooneys goal has awakened Roy Hodgsons men. Sturridge with another excellent first touch and that forces Muslera into another save.

(153 Mins)

Sturridge gets in the box again and controls it off his chest but goes down. No penalty says the referee.

(152 Mins)

Its Rooneys 40th England goal and hes in the top four England scorers of all time now. England with the momentum now, what will the last 13 minutes hold?

(151 Mins)

England equalise! And Rooney gets his first World Cup goal ever. Sturrdige spins near the halfway line and finds Johnson with a neat flick. The right back gets forward manages to get a cross in the box and Rooney arrives to tap in.

(151 Mins)

GOAL Uruguay 1-1 England (Wayne Rooney)

(150 Mins)

Its as if Uruguay are holding England at arms length. Sturridge manages to evade a few challenges but is forced to shoot from outside the area and again its an easy save for Muslera.

(149 Mins)

England are looking a frustrated team at the moment. Similar to their match against Italy theyre just unable to break through in the final third as Uruguay get men back. 17 minutes to go.

(147 Mins)

Lallana replaces Welbeck. He will get to play the last 20 minutes after playing the last 10 minutes against Italy.

(146 Mins)

Barkley is wiped out, the referee plays and advantage but Baines cross comes to nothing. Adam Lallana is getting ready to come on.

(144 Mins)

YELLOW CARD - Steven Gerrard is in the book for a hard tackle on Cristian Rodriguez. A frustrated tackle and one the England captain probably wouldnt be making if his side were one up.

(143 Mins)

Nicolas Lodeiro is making way for Cristhian Stuani of Espanyol.

(142 Mins)

Sturridge is in and almost slides a perfect pass to Rooney but its too close to Muslera and Englands attack breaks down again.

(140 Mins)

Sterling comes off for Barkley. The England winger hasnt had as big an impact as he had against Italy on Saturday.

(139 Mins)

And Pereira seems to have fully recovered. A forceful challenge which gets the ball away from Johnson is greeted by a roar from the Arena Corinthians crowd.

(138 Mins)

Theres concern as Pereira is down and looks in a bad way. Replays show Sterlings knee caught him in a challenge and he looks knocked out . The Uruguayan team doctors are calling for a substitution but a recovering, dazed Pereira is demanding to stay on the pitch.

(137 Mins)

Sterling gets past Cavani and tries to get the ball out of his feet and goes down under a challenge from Arevalo. No penalty says the ref.

(135 Mins)

Henderson goes for goal from distance but its a tame effort and doesnt trouble Muslera. It looks as if Ross Barkley is about to come on for England, but for who?

(134 Mins)

Rooney is fouled by Gimenez a few yards from the half way line and England have a free kick which theyve taken quickly.

(132 Mins)

Uruguay have a chance to breathe after a rapid few minutes from England has Muslera receives treatment for the Welbeck clash.

(132 Mins)

Another Baines cross finds Welbeck this time who is in a race with Muslera to get the ball. The keeper gets there first but Welbeck slides in and catches him on the knee.

(131 Mins)

Will it ever happen for Wayne Rooney at the World Cup?

(130 Mins)

Rooney almost equalises! Baines hooks the ball in and it misses Welbeck and comes to Rooney, he hits it hard but its striaght at Muslera and Uruguay manage to get it clear.

(129 Mins)

Were less than eight minutes into the second half and Uruguay have had three really good chances.

(128 Mins)

England are hanging in here. Lodeiro feeds Cavani who tries to curl his shot around Hart but he cant wrap his foot around it and its wide.

(126 Mins)

Chances are coming thick and fast for Uruguay. Gonzalez has a shot thats deflected for a corner and seconds later Suarez gets himself free on the right and tries a shot into the bottom left corner but its scuffed wide.

(125 Mins)

Hart just manages to keep England in it. Suarez tries the same trick again and curl in a ball directly from the corner flag. But Hart gets back and keeps it out.

(124 Mins)

A foul by Sturridge on Alvaro Pereira gives Uruguay a free kick on the half way line. The ball glances off Johnsons head and Uruguay have a corner early in the second half.

(123 Mins)

Costa Rica managed a comeback in the second half against Uruguay in the opening Group D game on Saturday scoring three goals. Can England do the same?

(121 Mins)

And the second half is underway with England kicking off.

(121 Mins)

Just what will the second half bring? The players are heading back out onto the pitch.

(119 Mins)

Uruguay have been powerful, aggressive and their pressing have not allowed England a moments rest.

(118 Mins)

England have found space in wide areas but havent really threatened in the middle when crossing the ball. Rickie Lambert is an option off the bench and Wilshere and Barkley are available again after coming on as substitutes against Italy.

(114 Mins)

As things stand Uruguay are tied on three points with Italy and Costa Rica who play each other tomorrow. England are currently rock bottom in Group D with zero points.

(-1058980043 Mins)

England and particularly Rooney had a couple of chances to get in front with a header off the bar in the 31st minute. But its Uruguay who are ahead and heading for victory, despite winning only one of their last six second group games in the World Cup.

(107 Mins)

One chance for Luis Suarez and Uruguay are one goal to the good. Thats all he needs and England have a mountain to climb if they want to get back into this match and have any chance of qualifying for the next round.

(106 Mins)

HALF TIME - And the referee blows for the end of the first half with Uruguay winning 1-0 over England.

(106 Mins)

Theres just one minute of added time at the end of this intriguing first half.

(104 Mins)

Back in the side and immediately back on the score-sheet. England knew Suarez would be a threat tonight Suarez may have put England on course for only their fourth defeat in their last 18 World Cup matches.

(102 Mins)

England have another corner after Sterling chips the ball into the box after skipping past two challenges but its cleared.

(100 Mins)

England almost immediately with an equaliser. Sturridge shoots toward the top left corner but hes to the near post and an easy stop for Muslera but England have a corner.

(99 Mins)

Who else but Suarez? England lose possession in the middle of the field, the ball comes to Cavani on the right and chips an inviting cross onto the head of Suarez who some how curls a header past Joe Hart and into the top right corner.

(98 Mins)

GOAL Uruguay 1-0 England (Suarez)

(95 Mins)

10 minutes to half time and it has been a pretty even first half between the two sides.

(94 Mins)

Rooney just inches away from a first World Cup goal.

(92 Mins)

The game has certainly livened up in the last 10 minutes. Chances for both sides, England and Rooney coming closest.

(91 Mins)

Off the post from Rooney! Welbeck was fouled by Caceres in the bottom left corner of the field. Gerrard curls the free kick to the far post and Rooney sends a thumping header off the crossbar from a couple of yards.

(90 Mins)

Godin very lucky to be still on the field. It was a very cynical challenge and stopped a good England move in its tracks. And Godin ironically clears the resulting Gerrard free kick.

(88 Mins)

Sturridge taken out by Godin. The Uruguayan captain is already on a yellow card but the referee shows no second for the foul. Gerrard with the free kick.

(87 Mins)

Cavani with a vicious shot straight from a Suarez corner thats pulled back to the edge of the area. But his first time shot is just over.

(85 Mins)

Uruguay have a free-kick a long way out and Suarez hits it high and curling towards the back post. Caceres is charging the ball down but Hart calmly jumps up and collects it.

(84 Mins)

Uruguay are slowly growing into this match. Both sides look a bit nervous and there are a number of misplaced and wayward passes.

(-1058980043 Mins)

Rooneys come closest tonight but is yet to find his scoring boots in a World Cup. Hes gone 707 minutes of playing time, and counting, without a goal in the tournament.

(78 Mins)

Uruguay look much more impressive than on Saturday night against Costa Rica. In the opening group games only Iran, Algeria and USA have a worse pass completion rate than the Uruguayans. Is it the Luis Suarez factor?

(77 Mins)

Great play from England but they cant find the final pass. Henderson manages to get the ball to Sturridge on the right who cuts in and tries a curling left shot but its deflected and England have a corner.

(75 Mins)

Jagielka slips and clears a ball into the path of Cristian Rodriguez who is all alone on the edge of the area. He sends a vicious left footed strike towards the top right corner and its just over the bar.

(74 Mins)

Caceres launches the ball up-field to try and play Suarez in behind the England defence but the striker is offside. The game has just clamed down after a rapid first 10 minutes.

(72 Mins)

Rooney just clipped by Arevalo Rios as he tries to break up the field and England have another free kick.

(70 Mins)

So close from Rooney! His free-kick is inches from the top left corner but it is agonisingly too high. Muslera was rooted to the spot and stood no chance. Rooney so close to his first World Cup goal.

(69 Mins)

YELLOW CARD - Sturridge tries to lift the ball through to Rooney on the edge of the penalty box but Godin blocks it with his hand. The referee gives a free kick and books the defender.

(67 Mins)

England have a free kick in a good position after Sterling is brought down. Uruguay clear and almost break clear up the field but Henderson cuts out Lodeiro.

(65 Mins)

Suarez has a corner and England are almost caught out in the first five minutes. Joe Hart is off his line anticipating a cross but Suarez tries to curl the ball in directly from the corner. However, the England keeper manages to recover.

(62 Mins)

Baines tries to play in Sturridge but its just ahead of him. Muslera slips when he comes to collect the ball and almost presents Sturridge with a gift but manages to recover.

(60 Mins)

KICK OFF - Referee Carlos Velasco Carballo of Spain blows the whistle to start this match. England are playing in all white, Uruguay in their sky blue kit.

(59 Mins)

We are now seconds away from kick off in this crucial Group D match.

(57 Mins)

Uruguay have made a number of changes themselves: Suarez, Lodeiro and Alvaro Pereira are back in the side with Forlan dropped to the bench, Lugano out injured and Maxi Pereira facing a one match suspension for his red card against Costa Rica.

(56 Mins)

Oxlade Chamberlain is still injured for England but its an unchanged starting eleven from their opening 2-1 defeat to Italy.

(54 Mins)

The teams are about to head out onto the pitch for the national anthems.

(53 Mins)

The two sides have played each other 10 times, Uruguay winning four of those ties to Englands three. The two last met in a friendly in 2006, England 2-1 victors.

(52 Mins)

This is a must win match for both sides if they want a realistic chance of qualification for the next round.

(48 Mins)

However, Uruguay are boosted by the news that Luis Suarez is fit to start after missing out on the opening match against Costa Rica. The striker is an important player for La Celeste scoring 11 times in Uruguays qualification for the tournament.

(47 Mins)

Both of these sides lost their opening games of the group, England going down 2-1 to Italy and Uruguay losing 3-1 to Costa Rica.

(46 Mins)
