England are close to exiting the World Cup after losing 2-1 to Uruguay.

Uruguay went ahead in the 39th minute, Luis Suárez scored when Cavani delivered a ball from the edge of the box to Suarez who was unmarked and headed right past Joe Hart. Uruguay went up 1-0. England were under some serious pressure, faces were down and spirits were low. England were in big trouble.
The momentum of England went high when Glen Johnson delivered a great ball into the box and Wayne Rooney tucked it in the back of the net to make it 1-1 giving the three lions hope of getting back into this one.
Ten minutes later, England’s dreams were crushed when Fernando Muslera drove a long ball into the path of Suárez allowing him to smash the ball into Joe Hart’s net from 10 yards out giving Uruguay the lead 2-1.
The full time whistle went as England have now to rely on Italy and Uruguay to stay in this tournament, a very disappointing evening for England fans as they would have expected much more from the team.
