After an encouraging performance in defeat in their first game against Italy, England can go into tonight’s game against Uruguay full of confidence, with their opponents also losing their opening game in a shock 3-1 defeat to Costa Rica.
Much has been made of Wayne Rooney’s role and performance in the 2-1 loss to Italy, with the Manchester United star looking somewhat out of sorts in an unfamiliar role on the left flank, though he did provide a neat assist for in-form striker Daniel Sturridge.
Roy Hodgson will have to decide whether or not Rooney deserves to start ahead of Sturridge upfront, while the likes of Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana will certainly make a case for starting ahead of him out wide.
For Uruguay, the big news is that star striker Luis Suarez should make it back into the team after recovering from injury. The Liverpool man has been one of the best players in the world this season, and could make a timely recovery to help his country get back to winning ways as they look to qualify for the knockout stages.
England will perhaps be slight favourites for this match if they can play as they did against Italy, but Suarez joining Edinson Cavani upfront for the South Americans should make them a different prospect from the side that lost to Costa Rica.
