England v Uruguay: How Roy Hodgson's men rated in Sao Paulo

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez played the starring role as Uruguay beat England to leave Roy Hodgson's men clinging on in Group D after two defeats.

Wayne Rooney had given England hope with his first goal in a World Cup tournament at the 10th time of asking, turning in a Glen Johnson cross to level the game at 1-1, before Suarez delighted the thousands of Uruguayan fans with a powerful finish to secure the points with six minutes remaining.

But how did Roy Hodgson's England men measure up over the 90 minutes in Sao Paulo?

JOE HART (GOALKEEPER) 6

Looked nervous at times and was almost caught out twice by corners from Luis Suarez.

GLEN JOHNSON (RIGHT-BACK) 6

Redeemed another uncertain performance with a perfect cross for Wayne Rooney's equaliser.

GARY CAHILL (CENTRE-BACK) 6

Solid if unspectacular but both centre-halves were worried by the ominous threat of Suarez.

PHIL JAGIELKA (CENTRE-BACK) 5

Never looked comfortable and fortunate to get away with one horrible first-half slice in England's penalty area.

LEIGHTON BAINES (LEFT-BACK) 5

Been unconvincing at the World Cup so far. The odd decent contribution going forward but nervous defensively.

STEVEN GERRARD (MIDFIELD) 5

Not a great day for England's captain. Lost possession for Uruguay's first goal and it was his misplaced header that led to Suarez's winner.

JORDAN HENDERSON (MIDFIELD) 6

Worked hard alongside Gerrard in central midfield but struggled to impose himself to any great extent.

RAHEEM STERLING (FORWARD) 6

The occasional nice touch but never looked like repeating his fine display against Italy, when he was more effective in the centre.

WAYNE ROONEY (FORWARD) 7

England's biggest threat and proved that if he is to play for England, it must be in a central role.

DANNY WELBECK (FORWARD) 5

Looked like his efforts in Manaus had taken their toll. Barely had any impact whatsoever.

DANIEL STURRIDGE (FORWARD) 6

Not as lively as against Italy but had a couple of chances. Again looked short of zip but a danger at times.

SUBSTITUTES

ROSS BARKLEY (MIDFIELD) 5 - For Raheem Sterling on 64 mins

The odd silky run and touch but could not get into the game enough in his cameo.

ADAM LALLANA (MIDFIELD) 5 - For Danny Welbeck on 71 mins

Got 20 minutes but could not help England salvage anything.

Other substitutions

Rickie Lambert (for Jordan Henderson, 87 mins),

Only players on the pitch for a minimum of 20 minutes have been rated.
