Thanks for joining me on a disappointing evening for England fans. A Wayne Rooney equaliser looked to have salvaged something, but a Luis Suarez double has put them to the sword. England have to completely rely on Italy to win their last two games, while the Three Lions must beat Costa Rica on Tuesday. Thank you for all of your predictions this evening and stick with us at Sky Sports for all of your post-match needs, including our match report and quotes.
England get a corner and Joe Hart comes up for it. Rooney swings it in, but Jagielka heads wide and Uruguay get ready to celebrate on the touchline.
Gerrard goes down under the challenge of Arevalo from 30 yards but the referee doesn't give anything. England are knocking on the door, but is there enough time?
Baines picks out Gerrard, centre of the goal from 30 yards, who drags his effort wide of Muslera's goal.
Sturridge tries to seek out Lambert on the left-wing but the Liverpool man can't control the ball and it goes out for a Uruguay throw in. Desperate times for England here.
Just one minute left of normal time, can England salvage anything as Uruguay continue to wind the clock down?
Gerrard delivers it into the area but Uruguay clear it easily and break on the counter-attack, then opt to keep the ball in the corners.
Pause in the game as Suarez goes down with cramp, calling the stretchers. Looks like the end of the game for him.
England get a free-kick on the edge of the Uruguay area after a bad challenge from Stuani on Rooney. Chance to immediately equalise here.
A long ball from Muslera skims the head of Gerrard and sets Suarez free beyond the England defence who smashes it high into Hart's net from 10 yards out to double his tally, and make it 2-1 to Uruguay.
Henderson emerges with the ball to the right of Uruguay's area and tries to pick out Sturridge but Muslera handles well.
Nervy moments as the ball bounces around the England area with Hart rooting to his line, but it's that man Gary Cahill who sweeps up the danger and clears the ball. Uruguay the more threatening at the moment.
Pereira slips a great ball through to Suarez to the left of the box, and he drills it towards the six-yard area but Cahill clears once again. Super defending.
Caceres delivers a searching ball into the England area with Cavani and Suarez waiting, but Cahill clears it behind for a corner.
It's end to end stuff here in Sao Paulo as Uruguay threaten with a few crosses into the England area, who confidently clear. Set for a grandstand finish.
CHANCE FOR ENGLAND! Sturridge picks it up in the area, turns and hits a low shot towards the bottom right corner but Muslera palms away. Good save.
Rooney heads the ball towards Sturridge in the area and he's bundled over by Pereira, but there's no penalty. Great pressure from England here.
Excellent play from Glen Johnson as he delivers a superb ball across the Uruguayan area and it's Wayne Rooney, 2 yards out, who tucks it in to level the scores! 1-1!!
Sturridge twists and turns outside the Uruguayan area and hits a low shot towards Muslera, but it's right down the 'keepers throat and it's easily smothered.
Just under twenty minutes to go for England to salvage an equaliser. Best chance of the half falling to Wayne Rooney so far.
After a couple of minutes of English pressure, Suarez receives the ball on the halfway line and is nudged in the back. Freekick to Uruguay and the pressure is relieved for now.
Nice patient play from England as they wait for gaps to open, and Johnson tries to take on Pereira but his touch is heavy and the ball is cleared.
Rooney plays a nice backheel towards Barkley, but Arevalo just gets in before the Everton man as he approaches the Uruguayan area. Well defended.
Sturridge gets beyond Caceres and drills a cross in towards Rooney, but Muslera gets there first to smother the ball.
The Uruguayan doctor has obviously told Pereira that he shouldn't carry on - and he's having none of it! After a few wags of the finger, Pereira returns to the pitch after seemingly looking concussed. Fair play.
There's concern here for Pereira who was hit in the head by Sterling's knee after he tried to slide tackle the England winger. Brief delay as he receives treatment.
Sterling dances past a couple of challenges and strides into the area, and goes down after a challenge from Godin. No penalty. The referee tells him to get up and the ball trickles out for a goal-kick.
A searching ball by Gimenez is aimed over the top for Suarez, but Cahill manages to usher the Liverpool man out of play and England get themselves a goal kick.
Henderson skips away from a couple of challenges and tries to bend a 20 yard strike into the bottom left corner, but it's held comfortably by Muslera.
Baines is penalised for a late challenge on Caceres, but the Everton man avoids a yellow card and Uruguay have a free-kick on the halfway line.
Another great ball from Baines as he delivers a driven ball into the six yard area, but Welbeck can't stretch for it and Muslera smothers the ball, who calls for treatment after being caught by Welbeck in the knee.
CHANCE FOR ENGLAND! Baines manages to play a great ball into the box and Rooney picks it up six yards out, but he hits it straight at Muslera. Huge opportunity missed by England.
Rodriguez threads the ball through to Cavani, who's one-on-one with Hart, but he drags the shot wide of the goal! Huge opportunity for Uruguay and a massive let-off for England, again.
Chance for Uruguay! Suarez, unopposed, somehow emerges with the ball to the right of the area but he drags it shot across the area. Poor effort from Suarez as England were caught out there.
Cavani tees the ball to Gonzalez who fires in on goal, but his shot is deflected away. The resulting corner is cleared by Gerrard.
Suarez takes another corner and tries to catch out Hart again! The keeper gets there just before it goes over the line, but a heart-stopping moment for England there.
Pereira goes down clutching his face after being caught by a Sturridge elbow, but the referee judges that it was accidental and the Liverpool man avoids a card.
Suarez tries to repay an earlier favour by playing a similar ball delivered for his goal to Cavani, but this time Cahill clears before the PSG man can hit it on goal.
There isn't much love for Rooney from Mike Lane: 'Can someone please tell me why Rooney is even playing ? That goal came from him not keeping the ball and Uruguay have had 3 or 4 breaks coming from Rooney losing possession and finally why can't he score from that corner ?' and Ryan Warren: 'Definitely should not be playing Rooney! If it was Lallana or Milner in his place instead then they would have scored from the header that hit the post! Bad decision to play Rooney instead in my opinion.'
Some positivity from Kieran: 'England will fight back and Barkley & Lallana will come on and help us on our way to a 3-1 victory!' while Kim Jensen hopes for a reshuffle at the back: 'I hope this isn't going to be a big belly flop into the blue waters of Brazil. Bring in Jones for some hard nose defense.'
Ben David isn't happy, here's his thoughts: "England's problem is they changed Sterling's position just to accommodate Rooney. Sterling had a magnificent game against Italy down the middle,should not have changed it. Rooney should have been dropped for Lallana." Do you agree with Ben?

England have struggled to hold onto possession so far in this game. Gerrard tries to find Sturridge on the edge of the box, but the ball is well intercepted by Arevalo - who's been everywhere for Uruguay tonight.
Poor delivery from Baines as he finds the first man, who clears it easily. Decent response from England though.
Superb run from Sterling as he jinks past a couple of challenges and crosses it in, but again it's headed behind for a corner.
The corner goes all the way across the box to Rooney, who attempts to dink it back in but it takes a deflection and England get another corner. Uruguay eventually clear the ball following the resulting corner.
Rooney threads through a wonderful ball towards Sturridge, who's running away from goal but manages an effort that stings the palms of Muslera who can only push it behind for a corner.
Cavani delivers a sumptuous ball from the edge of the area to find an unmarked Suarez, who nods it confidently past a sprawling Joe Hart. It's a great header, and England trail 1-0.
Johnson finds his fellow full-back Leighton Baines in acres of space, but his cross finds Godin and it's cleared easily by the Atletico Madrid defender.
Johnson feeds into Sturridge, all of 35 yards out, who attempts a rather audacious effort at goal. It flies harmlessly over the bar and Uruguay get a goal kick.
Baines penalised for conceding a free-kick deep inside the Uruguayan half. Looked harsh - just as England looked to have got themselves in a promising position.
Gerrard concedes a free-kick from 30 yards and Suarez whips another ball into the area, but it's cleared once again by Cahill.
Replays show just how close England were to a goal there, as Rooney got above Caceres but could only divert the ball onto Muslera's bar.
ENGLAND HIT THE BAR! Gerrard's deep cross is met by Wayne Rooney, who heads it straight off the bar from 2 yards out. Unlucky from England there, as Rooney was stretching just a bit too much.
Welbeck gets to the ball first and Caceres brings him down, about five yards in front of the left-hand corner spot. Time for Gerrard to whip another cross in.
Godin blocks Sturridge and England are awarded a free-kick to the right of the Uruguay goal, 25 yards out. Godin narrowly avoids a second yellow card though, and he's lucky to stay on the pitch. The resulting free-kick is cleared easily by Uruguay.
Welbeck bursts beyond Caceres and runs into the box. He tries to cut it back to Sturridge, but Godin gets in to block the cross and divert it behind. The referee decides, however, that it's a Uruguayan goal kick.
The corner is driven in low to Cavani who tries to steer it towards the top-right corner, but it sails just over the bar.
Lodeiro slips a ball through to the six-yard area which is aimed for an onrushing Cavani, but Cahill gets across to clear it out for a corner.
The resulting free-kick is aimed towards the back post, but Hart's there to gather. Well held by Hart.
Sterling concedes a free-kick on the left hand side after leaning into Pereira. Chance for Suarez to whip it in...
The game has quietened down somewhat in recent minutes, with neither side making full use of their possession.
England concede possession again as Sturridge attempts to hold onto a quick Sterling pass, but he's beaten to the ball by Godin who nicks in quickly and clears the danger.
Sterling picks up the ball and attempts a quick give-and-go with Sturridge, but the youngster gives the ball away. Fortunately for him, Uruguay can't capitalise.
If you're just joining us, we're twenty minutes in and the best chances have fallen to Uruguay's Cristian Rodriguez, while Wayne Rooney's free-kick narrowly missed the top-left corner.
Good powerful run from Johnson as he aims to burst beyond the Uruguayan defence, but England and Daniel Sturridge are eventually flagged for offside.
Seems to be a lot of rotation in England's front four so far, with Sterling switching flanks repeatedly. They haven't managed to command possession just yet.
The resulting corner from Gerrard finds Suarez, at the front post, who clears the ball easily and relieves the pressure on Uruguay.
Henderson finds Sturridge on the edge of the area who attempts a trademark 'cut-in and shoot' effort with his left foot, but his shot is blocked by Godin and it loops out for an England corner.
Replays show Rodriguez is furious with himself after that miss. He arguably had more time to compose himself, but his shot was whiskers over the bar.
CHANCE FOR URUGUAY! England give the ball away in midfield and Gonzalez's cross goes across the area and finds Rodriguez, free on the corner of England's area, who fires just over the top-right corner. Let off for England there, who conceded possession far too easily.
Caceres aims a long, searching ball over the England defence in search of Suarez, but the back four hold their line superbly and Suarez is flagged for offside.
England try a quick counter attack and Rooney skips away from Arevalo on the half-way line, and is upended by the Uruguayan midfielder. England, rather quickly, lose possession following the free-kick.
Typical tenacity from Suarez as he chases down Jagielka and tries to force him into a mistake just before the half-way line, but the Everton defender just manages to clear his lines.
Welbeck goes down after a late collision, but it looks like he'll be okay to carry on despite a brief spell lying on the Sao Paulo ground.
CLOSE FROM ROONEY! A great effort as he bends it round the wall towards the top-left corner, but it narrowly evades the goal. Agonisingly close for England, and Uruguay hold on.
Edge of the box, Sturridge tries to dink a ball through to Rooney but Gimenez handles it before it can reach Rooney. Free-kick is awarded 20 yards from goal - big opportunity here...
Nice play from the edge of the Uruguay area as Suarez attempts a neat ball through to Rodriguez, but Hart races out and smothers the ball. Commanding goalkeeping from Hart there.
Sturridge is fouled 30 yards from goal and Baines' freekick is swung into the area but Godin clears it easily before any England player can attack the ball.
Gerrard plays get a superb ball down the right flank and Johnson's cross is aimed towards Rooney, but Arevalo manages to clear just before the England man can get on the end of it.
Suarez tries to catch out Hart by aiming the corner towards the goal, but Hart gets there before it can trickle over the line. Fast start from Uruguay.
Sterling is dispossessed by Lodeiro who feeds in Suarez on the left hand side. Suarez's cross is blocked by Cahill and Hart can't gather the loose ball - corner to Uruguay.
A ball is thread through to Sturridge and it's seemingly smothered by Muslera, who then spills the ball and almost gifts it straight to Sturridge but fortunately for the Uruguay keeper, he holds on.
A heavy touch from Rooney finds its way to Johnson who plays in Sterling in the box, but the Liverpool man is ushered away by Pereira and Uruguay clear.
The national anthems have been sung. The teams have exchanged handshakes. We're moments away from England v Uruguay!
Thank you for your predictions this evening, we've been absolutely inundated here at Sky Sports towers. We're just under five minutes away and the teams are in the tunnel. Nerves jangling? Feeling confident? Not long to wait now.
On the other side of the planet is Akshat Pande who, if my calculations are right, is watching this after midnight! 'Watching the match from breezy Mumbai right now. I really expect Rooney to put in a non-scoring but man-of-the-match performance. I still think England will concede but I expect the bench to make a difference as well. I'm going for a 2-1 win for England.'
Chris Green's unhappy to see Southampton's Adam Lallana on the bench. Do you agree? 'It's baffling to not see Lallana included in the starting line-up for England, as he deserves an opportunity to impress on the big stage. Hodgson will probably give him a chance at some point this evening as many fans want to see him in action, but whether that happens or not remains to be seen.'
Just over fifteen minutes to go and there's still plenty of time to send in your predictions. My Twitter handle is @davidalexbowers but you can still email me - email@example.com
Here's a neutral viewpoint provided by Cian Hughes - "Evening mate, tough to call this one. I am a huge fan of Liverpool, so really I want to see all LFC players do good. But ever since I saw the draw for this group stage, I've wanted to see Suarez score loads of goals against England and I think that will happen tonight. 2-2 draw, Sturridge to score first and Suarez to score twice, then Sterling to get a late goal."
I think that's an excellent point that Shola raises. A huge amount of focus on the return of Suarez, but there's still the enormous threat of PSG's Edinson Cavani. Should England be worried of Uruguay's front two, or should they be worried about Hodgson's front four? Have received a huge amount of feedback so far, so keep it coming and we'll publish the best!
Thanks to Shola Giwa, who says: "I see this being about the attack of Uruguay and defence of England. Tough on Glen but I expect him to be professional and tackle Suarez hard. I am quite sure he will just be there as a decoy and cavani would be the real deal. 3-2 for England. Sterling to shine."
Some more positive predictions here. Thanks to Dave from York: "Feeling confident of a 2-0 win tonight as long as we play confident attacking football and keep it tight at the back" and Chris Green: "England to win 2-0, with Baines and Rooney scoring the goals."
Been a lot of coverage over Wayne Rooney's inclusion in the squad. Some of you out there are backing the Manchester United man - thanks to @SuvigyaMishra for this: "Big, big day for 3 Lions, @WayneRooney and Gerrard got to pick up the pace and deliver ! 3-1 To us with Rooney to score!"
Not everyone's happy with Roy Hodgson's team selection, here's Karl Smith in Kendal: "Utter joke, Henderson and Rooney are so lightweight and couldn't beat an egg. Barkley was a must to start. Goodbye England!"
Fans from all across the country are emailing and tweeting in their droves: "Hi Dave, Leeds fan Dan here! Needing Lallana to start and bag a brace for England! 3-1 winners with Rooney scoring too ! MOT!!," and here's Sammy Lawford, who's predicting a feisty encounter: "make or break time...Lets hope england can win 3-1. there will be plenty of yellows and at least one red card in this match, sadly."
Uruguay have picked up a red card in two of their last four games at the World Cup, while England have never conceded 2+ goals in three successive World Cup games before.
England have scored in each of their last eight World Cup encounters with South American sides, while Daniel Sturridge has scored three goals in his last four appearances for England.
Not long to go now, ladies and gentlemen. So here's a pick of the best stats provided by our friends over at Opta: England are winless against Uruguay at the World Cup. They've met twice: in 1954 (Uruguay won 4-2 in the quarter-finals) and 1966 (0-0).
Predictions are absolutely flying in already. Here's Jordan Green: "England to win 2-1 I believe, hopefully Rooney will play better in the middle, just keep Suarez quiet and we'll be okay," and thanks to Josh Britton too: "Big night ahead for the lads, I think if we get the ball out wide and play through Sterling and Welbeck that Uruguay won't be able to handle it. 2-0 England from the boys in the Britton Household."
So, the team news is in and England remain unchanged from their defeat to Italy. Remains to be seen whether Rooney will be switched from the wing to the centre. Huge news for Uruguay as Luis Suarez STARTS. We're just under an hour away from kick off, so stay with us for all your pre-match build-up needs.
Here is Uruguay's XI: Muslera, Caceres, Gimenez, Godin, Pereira, Alvaro Gonzalez, Rios, Lodeiro, Rodriguez, Cavani, Suarez.
Here's the all important team news. England's XI is as follows: Hart, Johnson, Jagielka, Cahill, Baines, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck, Sturridge.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of England v Uruguay. A massive Group D game in Sao Paulo awaits, and I'd love to hear your pre-match thoughts. Send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter @davidalexbowers.
