England are now hanging by a thread in reaching the knock-out stages of the World Cup after a Luis Suarez inspired 2-1 defeat against Uruguay.
And the world has reacted via Twitter to the loss, as many were really hoping that this ‘Young and Brave’ squad can surprise and progress from a tough group.
England will now pray that Balotelli and co defeat BOTH Costa Rica and Uruguay for them to have any chance of progressing in the competition.
If the above scenario was to occur, England, Uruguay, and Costa Rica will all be tied on 3 points. Therefore the table will come down to goal difference, which England currently lie bottom with on -2.
Thus the Three Lions will need to win their last game by a rather large goal margin, or hope that Italy beat their opponents convincingly.
Here are the best Twitter reactions from last night’s encounter.
Big choice for Hodgson now. Aisle or window seat. #EnglandvsUruguay

The more times I look at Uruguay’s goals I think Jagielka should never start for England again. #Nomansland

It’s funny, despite being rationally aware England would probably come up just short v Italy & Uruguay, while it happens can’t help but moan
