OK time to face reality. England have become a second rate footballing nation, a long way from ever winning another World Cup.
And Luis Suarez is truly one of the greatest players on the planet.
Roy Hodgson’s men started the match against Uruguay as favourites. But once again our multi millionaires simply weren’t good enough.
Suarez produced his magic on 39 minutes when Cavani served up a world class finish that exposed England’s deficiency.
When Rooney finally landed his first ever World Cup goal to make it 1-1 the three lions roared and hopes were raised that this was our big chance.
But even half fit Suarez was too good for England. And his stunning match winner restored reality.
It was a big pre-match mistake by Hodgson to suggest Suarez is not world class
Tactically Hodgson waited too long to make changes. Gerrard never found his Liverpool form. Rooney lacked support. Barkley needed longer on the pitch.
The morning after the night before England players are apologising for letting the fans down. Rock bottom and pointless after two matches. With just one final chance against Costa Rica to recover some pride. It’s a familiar story.
England may have the most exciting league in the world. But its players like Suarez who make it special. The truth is we need more homegrown talent. And players who don’t freeze on the big stage.
COLOMBIA TOP AFTER MAKING HISTORY
Meanwhile in Group C it was pure joy for Colombia and their fans.
The South Americans celebrated a thrilling 2-1 victory against the Ivory Coast, winning back-to-back World Cup matches for the first time in their history
The most boring team in the 2014 Word Cup are Greece, who held on against Japan, despite having skipper Kostas Katsouranis sent off in 0-0 draw.
