Louis Suarez Beats England 2-1 – Elimination Almost Certain

9:59 pm, Thursday, June 19th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 119 Comments

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. :D

Comments welcome.

  • 6 catchy in norway // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:09 PM

    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

  • 7 Big Pappa Cissé // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:10 PM

    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.

    Gerrard has been shite in both games. Time to start the likes of Barkley and Lalana.

  • 14 manxpie // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:21 PM

    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

  • 15 welshgeordie9 // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:22 PM

    Omg Belfast i actually agree with you with that, and i was just going to type that it in perhaps we think the same how cool is that

  • 16 Graeme // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:22 PM

    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

  • 17 toonarmydownsouth // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:23 PM

    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

  • 18 Average_Contents // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:23 PM

    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.

    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

  • 32 geordie157 // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:31 PM

    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

  • 40 Tsunki // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:34 PM

    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.

  • 43 Tsunki // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:36 PM

  • 49 Tsunki // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:39 PM

    Johnson played cavani onside by ignoring him, failed to challenge him as he crossed and jagielka didn’t anticipate the cross as well as Suarez. Poor but expected. Second goal was even poorer. But that’s as good as we are at the back against class strikers.

  • 52 toonking // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:41 PM

    generally speaking, i might be frustrated to see england go out the world cup “at the minute”, but that is what i will always expect to happen, the thing is i support a premier league team and want them to make progress, progress is only going to happen when we spend money on players. These days their is just not enough time allowed for managers to bring players through so they’ll get experienced foreigners which leaves the english players warming the bench.

  • 53 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:41 PM

    You can have the best players in the world producing lovely approach play but without someone to convert chances you’re going nowhere. Sturridge, Sterling and Rooney don’t fit the bill.

  • 54 Average_Contents // Jun 19, 2014 at 10:42 PM

    Erm…. Nod it to suarez maybe! And the whole backline wasn’t behind him because where was baines? If you look the ball drops near enough in the left back position!

    Seriously your telling me if a balls there to be won you wouldn’t go for it? Bollox mate because natural reactions kick in, footballing instincts! Whatever you want to call it kick in and it’s his job! I’ve never played professionally but I’ve played and if,a balls there to be won you Fcuking go for it no matter what’s going on around you!

    Sunday league you might challenge for that but there was no need at all to go for that ball, it was under control and he fluffed it

    Never said Jageilka shouldn’t of been tighter, the point was the ball should never ever of made it in the box, that is 100% solely down to Glen Johnson the worst FB to ever pull on a England shirt

    that could be truthfully our owners fault!

    andy carroll i think was looking like a great future england striker and then comes that transfer which ruined him.

    when he left for liverpool he was never going to get himself right into their team, strikers who go into top 4 teams right away are them who play champions league every season, not strikers who are part of the mid table.

    so their he goes sitting on the bench and causing his muscles to be less and less use to football, the next minute he gets the injury and now he has become another steven saylor.

    does anyone else think ashley cole was a big miss?

    he’s been englands best and chelsea and arsenals best all of his career

    baines scores a few but defensively not in the same calibre for me

    we’re as cole was solid defensively always but always added to attack aswell

    belfast i don’t understand that post please explain?

  • 90 Big Pappa Cissé // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:14 PM

    Hodgson is a bumbling Moron.

    No one can even name Chile’s manager but they look superior to England in every way.

    Woy Hodgson out. And take the over the hill, couldn’t give a sh*t lot with you as well.

  • 91 Big Pappa Cissé // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:15 PM

    ROY HODGSON CAN SUCK MY FAT ONE .

    costa rica GD2 pts 3
    italy GD1 pts 3
    urugray GD -1 pts 3
    england Gd-2 points 0

    if we were going to loose at all it would have been better loosing 3-1 or 3-1 as italy would certainly want to get a goal and go ahead.

    the result that i think would be most useful is italy 1-0 costa rica.

    italy GD2 pts 6
    costa rica GD1 pts 3
    urugray GD -1 pts 3
    england Gd-2 points 0

    italy are almost certain to go through but if urugray won 2-0 and costa rica won then italy will go out on goal differance.
    so knowing that is possible italy might just be able to save us but their is more chance of them holding back for the draw.

    still we will have to win 3-0

  • 93 sweendog // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:25 PM

    England went from a good attacking team to an average one tonight .shame but shows you roy hodgson isn’t good enough .. Glen noodle made a lot of sense about playing lallana instead of Henderson from the start

  • 94 sweendog // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:27 PM

    Glen hoddle ..not noodle :-)

  • 95 sweendog // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:27 PM

    He’d be a good manager for us

  • 96 Tsunki // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:28 PM

    Just shows how far behind English football is when baines is rated so highly. What an ineffective player. Still I reiterate this is the first championship where I haven’t been disappointed at us going out, played well with the players we had, no disgrace at all. Mind you, it softens the blow as I am currently chomping on a few tapas with a Ron Collins complete with lime and crushed ice in a hot tub in a lanzarote villa. Things could be worse as I see it. :)

  • 97 Belfast // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:28 PM

    Just a joke Manx.

    Apparently Jim Il fix it once fixed it for you to milk a cow blindfolded. I don’t want to milk any cows blindfolded.

    I do have my suspicions that the cow was in fact Jimmy himself.

    But not 100% sure.

  • 98 Toon Tang // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:29 PM

    Anyways, off to me pit ladies and gents, feel more deflated than Pards’ blowup doll after ‘angry sex’.

  • 99 Tsunki // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:30 PM

    Sweendog – Noodle may actually be intelligent predictive text :)

  • 100 Big Pappa Cissé // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:31 PM

    I bet Mike Ashley’s got a limp noodle .

  • 101 Belfast // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:31 PM

    I hate to be a grass Manx, but it was tsunki who told me about you milking the cow blindfolded.

    Goodnight :-)

  • 102 Tsunki // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:31 PM

    Belfast – ha ha treading that thin line there. :D

  • 103 sweendog // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:33 PM

    Tsunki .. Yep I wonder what predictive text gives for pardew …

  • 104 Belfast // Jun 19, 2014 at 11:38 PM

    You keep your cow in your bedroom Jimmy ? Really?

    Yes, moooooooooooooo

    I’ll get me coat.

    England out. Time for another Gomis post.

    Why no world cup for him?

    Disagreement over bonuses?

  • 111 RonVanDam // Jun 20, 2014 at 12:04 AM

    Maybe they should get Arry and Rogers to coach the England team for their last game and get Hodgson to step down. We still have a mathematical chance of making the second round

  • 112 JP...from The Rock // Jun 20, 2014 at 12:08 AM

    I think England played pretty well especially in the second half considering how overrated England is to most Brits. Suarez was unstoppable and Cavani finally impressed me with a battling performance. Shame on England though as they have a great blend of quality and flair within the team, still not out though.

  • 113 headtheball // Jun 20, 2014 at 1:12 AM

    Mr T

    I knew that photo would clinch it for you. I didn’t realize Welsh had a pony as well as sheep vying for his affection. Lesh is probably looking for a comeback gag.
    What would this blog be without wit?

  • 114 Lilongwe Geordie // Jun 20, 2014 at 6:26 AM

    Some of the comments re England are incredible. Maybe, just maybe, England are not very good. Certainly defensively there is very little talent. Jagielka and Cahill would make a very average Prem pairing, let alone international.

    Sturridge needs a strong player alongside him like liverpool… who at Liverpool? Suarez, no, he is much more about movement than strength. I guess you mean Sterling….

    Anyone who expected England to get out of the group had their expectations set too high anyway. A draw against Costa Rica and that will be my pre World Cup prediction complete for England.

  • 115 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 20, 2014 at 6:29 AM

    Got a great idea. Give the England job to Pardew!!!

    You jokes are like watching England play last night funny and embarrassing

  • 117 welshgeordie9 // Jun 20, 2014 at 7:12 AM

    like i said last night they think it’s all over it is now

  • 118 Lilongwe Geordie // Jun 20, 2014 at 7:16 AM

    The biggest disappointment for me is that we just didn’t blood the kids. Maybe against Costa Rica….. The squad always looked like sights were set on the future. Hopefully there are good centre halves coming through. Dier of Sporting hopefully will continue in the same vein of regression, but given England managers generally can’t be arsed with coming to the North East, I wonder whether they would look as far as Portugal.

  • 119 JDdubai // Jun 20, 2014 at 7:42 AM

    Welshie

    You realise it isnt all over at the moment right?

    Italy to win their games, not unlikely
    We beat costa Rica 2-0 and we go through…

    Realise we have been fairly crap so far but Iv seen more unlikely things happen.
