Two goals from Uruguay's Luis Suarez have left England's World Cup hopes in tatters and the team on the verge of an early exit.

It was Uruguay who drew first blood, but Wayne Rooney thought he had secured a draw for Roy Hodgson's England side with his first half goal.

But while England had their chances, it was that second Suarez shot just five minutes from time that sealed their fate.

And to add insult to injury, he had been accidentally put through by his Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard.

A second defeat for England leaves them in the precarious position of needing other results to go their way.

It's the old old story, too many European and foreign players in the English Premier League. All the top foreign players are doing the scoring in England and in the World Cup. It's time to get back to 'home produce' and get rid of all these billionaire owners who are throwing money at foreign players to win leagues. It is no longer 'sport' it is a business and ruthless.
