Uruguay Beats England on Suarez’s Late Goal

Uruguay Beats England on Suarez’s Late Goal

Matthias Hangst/Getty Images(SAO PAULO, Brazil) — He makes his living playing in England’s top tier of soccer. On Thursday, Luis Suarez all but eliminated England from World Cup play, scoring both goals in Uruguay’s 2-1 victory.
In his return from knee surgery, the striker continued where he left off in the English Premier League (EPL) by dominating opposing defenses. The first goal came in the 39th minute when Edinson Cavani chipped the ball across the box where Suarez headed it home for the opening tally. That followed a near goal from England’s Wayne Rooney off a free kick, but his header ricocheted off the crossbar.
As the second half progressed, England continued to search for an equalizing goal. It finally came in the 75th minute when Rooney finished a low cross from Glen Johnson, which slipped past keeper Fernando Muslera, for the tying strike. It was the first World Cup goal in the career of the Manchester United striker who was playing in his 10th career match.
The joy for England did not last long, however. Just 10 minutes later, Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerard was unable to play a long ball and it fell perfectly to his club-mate Suarez. After making one quick move to his left, the EPL’s leading goal scorer broke through again for the deciding goal.
To stay alive in the tournament, England must now defeat Costa Rica in their final group play match and hope that Italy wins both of its remaining games. They must also have a better goal differential than both Uruguay and Costa Rica, both of whom would be tied for the second spot in Group D.

Balotelli’s Header Lifts Italy Past England

Balotelli’s Header Lifts Italy Past England

Warren Little/Getty Images(MANAUS, Brazil) — Mario Balotelli headed in a cross from Candreva in the 50th minute, giving Italy a 2-1 lead as they would go on to defeat Englad by that score in Group D play at the World Cup. England outshot the Italians 18-12 but the defense lapsed in their loss.
The Azzuri took a 1-0 lead in the 35th minute as Claudio Marchiso corralled a volley from Andrea Pirlo before making a couple nifty moves to take the early advantage. England quickly responded with an equalizer from Daniel Sutrridge less than three minutes later.
Sturrdige post began and finished the scoring chance, sending a cross nearly 40 yards to open up the defense. Wayne Rooney settled the bar, before delivering it back to Sturridge who connected on his shot.
The match went into halftime tied at 1-1, but that did not last long. Five minutes into the second frame Balotelli got loose on the backline and was rewarded with his first goal of the tournament. Much was made of the absence of Gianluigi Buffon, the Italian goalkeeper, who sat with an ankle injury. His replacement was more than capable as Salvatore Sirigu made four saves in the win.
Italy will take on Costa Rica on Friday while England resumes Group play on Thursday when they take on Uruguay.
