It was quite plain to see within the opening 10 minutes that the England players were feeling the pressure and very few of them were able to deal with it. The need to get a result from this game plus the return of suarez to the uruguay starting 11 gave an impetus to their attack which was all but missing completely from their previous game against Costa Rica. Even so the English players should have been well aware of what suarez was capable of and therefor the space they granted him to head home the opening goal was pretty much unforgivable. At the start of the second half it looked very much as though England would be completely outplayed as cross after cross came into their penalty area , each one being dealt with by an increasingly panick stricken defence. They did however survive this storm and manage to get themselves in control of the game by the time Rooney equalised from the only decisive run johnson made in the entire game. With the team on the front foot , and the score at 1 - 1 someone ( perhaps everyone ? ) Decided to press the break pedal. And once again passes were despatched and received across the pitch and it looked very much as if the draw would be enough for them. Not so suarez and uruguay as a long punt forward grazed the top of Gerrards head and landed ionvitingly for suarez to run onto a crack past Hart with consumate ease. There can and will be the usual gnashing of teeth about how much they are paid and how the tactics were not properly deployed in either game but , to my eyes , on many levels , we just were not good enough
