England face almost certain elimination after losing 2-1 to Uruguay
Updated 10:14pm Thursday 19th June 2014 in News
FOOTBALL fans across Hampshire were left in utter misery after England lost 2-1 to Uruguay tonight.
Thousands are currently drowning their sorrows after witnessing Liverpool’s Luis Suarez score twice to all but end England’s World Cup.
Luis Suarez rifles home the second Uruguay goal
Wayne Rooney had cancelled out Suarez’s first-half opener with his first World Cup finals goal in the 75th minute and the momentum appeared to shift towards the Three Lions.
But a defensive mistake from captain Steven Gerrard let Suarez in one-on-one with Joe Hart and he rifled the ball past the England ‘keeper for the win.
It means England need a minor miracle to qualify and need Italy to beat both Costa Rica tomorrow and then Uruguay in their final game to stand a chance of getting through to the second round.
Even if the Italians are triumphant tomorrow, England would need a convincing victory against Costa Rica with a current goal difference of minus two.
