A motivated Liverpool star striker Luis Suarez scored twice against England on his return from a knee injury.

Luis Suarez underwent surgery on the meniscus in his left knee on May 22, but he made an immediate impact on his return scoring two brilliant goals to keep Uruguay‘s World Cup hopes alive. Earlier, Suarez missed Uruguay’s unexpected 3-1 loss to Costa Rica.

Suarez scored from his first shot on target, after heading in a beautiful cross from Edinson Cavani to give Uruguay the lead just before the half time.

 

Soon, Rooney finally scored his debut World Cup goal after some brilliant work from Daniel Sturridge and Glen Johnson to make it 1-1.

 

 

Roy Hodgson just before the game said Suarez is not a world class player, but Suarez answered him back with a 84th minute winner for Uruguay.

 

This leaves England in a difficult position and now they’ll be hoping Italy beat both Costa Rica and Uruguay. For Uruguay things are much more simpler, a draw or win against Italy will take them to the next round, but that too depends on Italy vs Costa Rica game today. As for Italy and Costa Rica, another win will take them to next round of the World Cup in Brazil.
