2014 World Cup - Group D
19th June - KO: 8pm BST -
England's second match in Group D of the 2014 World Cup will be against a talented Uruguay side who suffered a shock 3-1 defeat in their opening game against Costa Rica on Saturday. England also come into this game off the back of a defet having lost 2-1 against Italy in Manuas.
England will feel like a win against Uruguay could all but seal their qualification to the knockout stages. Uruguay have obvious goal threats in the form of Luiz Suarez and Edison Cavani, yet they struggled in qualifying, finishing fifth in the CONMEBOL and having to come through a play-off against Jordan to reach the finals.
Uruguay beat England 2-1 as Luis Suarez scored both goals.

Phil Jagielka - Up against a talented Uruguayan strikeforce, the organisation of the centre of defence will be all important and Phil Jagielka has nailed down that role for England. The Everton defender has enjoyed a good season domestically and will be integral to keeping Suarez and co quiet in Sao Paulo.
Luis Suarez - Not an original choice but the Liverpool striker has lit up the Premier League this season and he'll no doubt be chomping at the bit to have a go at the same defenders who have struggled to contain him domestically.
