Suarez double sends England on verge of elimination

Former champions England were on the verge of early elimination from the World Cup after Uruguay star striker Luiz Suarez returned from injury to score two stunning goals in his side’s dramatic 2-1 win in a thrilling group match.

Suarez, who did not play in his side’s shock 1-3 loss against Costa Rica, returned from a knee surgery last month to haunt the country where he plays club football for Liverpool to score in the 39th and 85th minutes and keep Uruguay afloat in the tournament.

England, who had lost to Italy 1-2 in their opening match, equalised through Wayne Rooney’s maiden World Cup goal in his third tournament appearance and 10th match.

The dramatic match at the Arena Corinthians looked like heading for a draw — which would have kept both the sides afloat in the tournament — with a re-energised England after Rooney’s equaliser even threatening to score the winning goal.
