Sink or swim game for England tonight - besides the Prediction League add your comments here; on team selection, tactics, etc. Are we going to win, lose or draw and why?

Come on Ingerland give us something to be proud about again. :wink:

Yes, it will be one of those three. :P

We've never beaten them in the World Cup, having drawn once and lost once. I fancy our chances, but I did against Italy and it didn't work out too well.

Uruguay will not play as badly as they did against Costa Rica, and they will have Suarez back.

I think it will end up as a draw.

I don't get how we are favourites with the bookies, bizarre.We are even money in places and Uruguay nearly 3-1.
What have we done to be favourites :lol:

Thought we started well and played well except for once again, getting caught on the break and a far post ball with defender and goalkeeper beaten.

Will they park the bus or, wait to catch us on the break again as we seek that so far elusive goal?

Shocking first half, 11 headless chickens trying to get forward too quickly and not playing with any intelligence

Italy are slow and composed in the middle so Gerrard and Henderson worked against them.. We need a Lalana or Wilshire on who can use the ball in little space.

Glenn Johnson is hopeless.

Rooney playing quite well I think, but really need to control the call in middle. So Henderson off, Wilshire on.. And I would take Welbeck off as well. Probably for Barkley.

Go big or go home Roy.

If I could have taken Johnson off 45 mins ago, I would. But Smalling and Jones are worse.

At least we lost in style against Italy. This has been terrible.

England have created a couple of reasonable openings without playing well. Uruguay are seasoned players at this level and it is showing.

Sterling has been taken off, which is probably the correct decision. He has been poor tonight, but he is young and will learn from this tournament.

This is turning into one of those sad England nights. Without a whimper really. We know how weak Uruguay are at the back but not tested them anywhere near enough, or with any class

I like how Roy really know how to mix it up. He throws on the 2 players who he feels were close to starting, rather than the players who could make a difference tonight..

and what's worse is that we're making their defence look solid.
