Brilliant Suárez gives Uruguay victory over ragged England

Luis Suárez emerged from a month of treatment on his injured knee to score both goals as Uruguay beat England 2-1 to keep his team's World Cup hopes alive and leave England's hanging by a thread.

Wayne Rooney hit the bar with a header in the first half but England looked badly off the pace, and the same loose marking that cost them dear against Italy in their first match allowed Suárez space to nod home Edinson Cavani's chipped cross after 39 minutes

England equalised in the 75th minute when Rooney touched in a low Glen Johnson cross for his first-ever World Cup goal, but Suárez - the scourge of Premier League defences all season - lashed in the winner in the 85th minute after England failed to deal with a length-of-the field punt by goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

Uruguay join Italy and Costa Rica, who meet in Recife on Friday, on three points with England on zero after two defeats.
