Two clinical finishes from Uruguay's Luis Suárez inflicted a second successive Group D defeat on England and left their FIFA World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.

Both sides had chances in an open first half at the Arena de Sao Paulo, Wayne Rooney heading against the Uruguay crossbar from close range, but six minutes before the break Suárez clinically headed the South American champions in front. Fifteen minutes from time Rooney tapped in an equaliser, his first FIFA World Cup goal, but ten minutes later Suárez got clear again and once more the finish was unerring.
