Louis Suarez Beats England 2-1 – Elimination Almost Certain


Louis Suarez scored two good goals for Uruguay tonight, after having a knee operation just four weeks ago, and the Liverpool man, who was short of match practice,  was too good for England, who couldn’t handle a Uruguay team who were taken apart by Costa Rica in their last game, as the South American side  conceded three poor goals in the second half.

Wayne Rooney – scoring England’s goal

It was another mediocre  performance from England, and a great  Edinson Cavani cross picked out Louis Suarez after 39 minutes of the first half,  and the Liverpool man headed the ball brilliantly past England goalkeeper Joe Hart.

England had their chances and Wayne Rooney headed against the cross-bar from three yards out following  corner and then Wayne shot straight at the goalkeeper, when he probably should have scored.

But after 75 minutes as England pressed Uruguay for the equalizer,Wayne got his first ever goal in the World Cup finals, as he  nicely tucked the ball home and it was all England for the next 10 minutes.

But then a long goal kick downfield and some terrible (make that pathetic) defending from England saw Louis Suarez get the ball and he hit the ball into the goal past Joe Hart from a narrow angle after 85 minutes – and it was just a terrible bit of schoolboy defending.

England have now lost two games and conceded two goals against both Italy and Uruguay and once again they have massively under-performed on the World Stage.

This was the first-ever time in the World  finals that England have conceded two goals in successive games, and we just were simply not good enough, in spite of all the big names in the side.

And you have to go back to 1950 since we lost two successive World Cup final goals. – and that was when we humbled 1-0 by USA.

It was not good tonight in Sao Paulo.

In the last four World Cup tournaments, only one country has ever gone through from the group stage with 3 points – which is the most points England can get now – if we beat Costa Rica next Tuesday – with the emphasis being on if.

But an Italy – Costa Rica draw tomorrow will see both countries on 4 points, and England will be formally eliminated.

The England press were kind to England after a decent performance against Italy, but that will not be the case after tonight – but Wayne don’t blame Wayne Rooney, who was England’s best player on the night – and he was a little unlucky not to score more than one goal.

There will be an investigation of what went wrong with England – and then we will massively under-perform again in the next European Championships in two years time.

Now we just have to hope Newcastle United do really great next season.

At least Newcastle have won something as recent as 1969, whereas England have won nothing since that World Cup win in 1966 on home soil.

Now – if only Newcastle  can sign some top-class players for £5M or less – we could be in business. 😀

    Apparently Gerrard and Johnson were content with dashing the hopes of a city so had to go for the hopes of a nation as well

    rooney not good enough

    gerrard and henderson sat in our half for the whole first half

    we have no one that dominates up front, sturridge runs all day, but needs a strong player next to him, same as he does at liverpool

    wellbeck simply not good enough at this level, would have had milner on ,

    again lallana should have started

    and joe heart isnt good enough

    Need to ship out these players that are happy to sit in midfield, pass it sideways and never get anywhere.

    We need a manager that plays attacking football and starts Barkley,Ox,Lallana & Shaw. Hodgson has been a nightmare.

    @manxpie85

    last season was a good season for willo but he is still not a good enough CB for us.

    the problem we have is that our attack is not very good and ashley himself will never play the money required for quality creative wingers attacking midfielders and forwards.

    So if we are to see the entertaining football we need to have defenders who are quality that way the manager doesn’t have to make the midfielders play so deep because when they playing players deep it’s because a result is more important than lots of goals.

    argentina for instance have poor defence but they still win because of that decent attack

    urugray had a poor defence but they had suaez today so still got that win.

    that is where the problem lies with both england and newcastle.

    england’s defence have been shocking since terry was removed, the thing about us is we don’t have the strikers to give us them goals needed when we leak so much.

    newcastle like england have the same problem ourselves. the first half of last season was good but we had a quality CAM and a very good forward but once cabaye left the goals were not going to be as easy, so because of our defence being a poor one we were starting to go for draws and lost more games.

    thought this was quite apt

    @nufcfans the only centre back in the Premiership who kept Suarez quiet over two games was Mike Williamson

    catchy but we were never out classed or really troubled we had the far better periods apart from early second half

    it wasn’t a defensive team by any means
    it was just gerrard was shit henderson was pointless and wellbeck was shit

    ya can’t predict them kind of performances

    next game wilshire and barkley to start instead of henderson and wellbeck for me

    Oh, the thought of P45DUE leaving us for Engerland would be so wonderful – but against that, Engerland dont need that sort of punishment either.
    Still, for the greater good, if England want him, I cant see many on tyneside objecting. Not even FCB as the compo would be wonderful for him lol

    Thought Henderson did okay with scraps he got

    Hodgson set us up wrong again, Uruguay did the carbon copy of Italy, sit back absorb our scrambled attack of players out of position all over the place, expose are ridiculously slow FB’s and ease it past the worlds most static goalkeeper

    Once again listening to that w*nker Andy Townsend immediately scape goat the wrong players “oh Jagelka should of been tighter there”
    Yeah? What about f**king Johnson Andy?
    He was actually marking Cavani before going walkies and then thought na don’t need to pressure him, make a challenge or even block the pass
    Then there’s Gerrard, no reason to challenge for that header, 2 CB’s behind you who had dealt with damn near everything thrown at them and had played the offside trap perfectly, well perfectly until you flicked it on Gerrard, ffs you train with this bloke everyday you must know he’s lurking for a stray ball
    As for Hart……
    The only real positives are that Gerrard and Johnson probably won’t make a major tournament again

    Not a chance that Gerrard can be blamed for that second goal! Our centre backs should of been anticipating that like suarez did but instead jakielka was stuck underneath and cahill wasn’t tight enough! Apart from that second half baines has been like a rabbit in headlights and johnsons not been much better apart from setting up rooney! Shocking defending from the back four

    And what have I said time and time again! Henderson ONLY WORKS in the liverpool system! Should of started wilshire instead and Welbeck should be nowhere near an England shirt he should of started barkley

    There we go rant over!

    didn’t you know all them achievements that our last england manager achieved?

    fabio cappello won so much through his time as manager but then he came to england and we perform awful.

    steve macclarean has did so well at his clubs too, the thing is he failed to get england into the euros.

    roy himself played with 4 attacking players which to be honest is the number of attacking players most managers would play when the teams defence is as poor as england.

    They had anticipated it mate, they had bang to rights on the offside trap, Gerrard doesn’t touch that ball, Suarez is offside
    Trust your CB’s, they’d been solid all game he had no need to even attempt that challenge

    toonking calm down lol i was only stating a fun fact i wasn’t calling for a willo england revolution mate

    but to be fair he would have got to suarez’s 1st lol

    but yeah i agree in some parts as the 1 experienced player i wanted at this world cup was ashley cole and he didn’t even make it where as lampard and gerrard has

    1 hasn’t played and the other has been shit and so has baines tbf infact against italy he was shocking

    i wouldn’t mind seeing sturridge, lambert,sterling as a front 3 tbh but thats probably an 80’s style lol

    both games should really have been draws, but that’s football you switch off for a moment and you get punished.

    Shame Oxlade got that injury think he could have made a difference. Not a fan of Johnson but thought he was decent tonight, Baines was poor for most of the game. Gerrard and Henderson though was the main weakness.

    on the plus side, France are playing well.

    A free header in the middle of the park with no support when, who the f**k was he going to nod it to!
    The whole back line was behind him, doing there job, a job he knows as it’s part of the set up
    Trust your back line it’s why they are there, he even got a shout, he’s actually played Suarez on by knocking the ball on
    He had no support no one to knock the ball to, he leaves it we retain possession through a free kick, it’s that simple, he’s the captain ffs he knows the system the team are playing and the tactics there carrying out

    Oh well they tried and tbf not expected to do as well as they did. We only really have about three of four quality players so a the huff and puff counts for nothing when you have a smart team that presses, soaks up the pressure and pounced clinically when required. We have a team in between squads, the great team that should have won a trophy gives way to promising youngsters of the future. We’re just in between world’s atm.
