England take on Uruguay tonight knowing defeat would seriously dent their chances of reaching the knockout stages of the World Cup.

Roy Hodgson’s side go into the game as favourites, but the England manager will have a selection headache following Wayne Rooney’s poor display in a wide role in the 2-1 defeat against Italy.

There have been plenty of calls to return Rooney to his favoured ‘number 10’ role in the centre, and if he does, the 7/4 on him to break his World Cup duck will prove popular with punters.

Uruguay will be going all out to eradicate the memory of an embarrassing 3-1 loss to Costa Rica, and with talisman Luis Suarez returning to the fray, they will have that added boost which could make all the difference.

The Liverpool man is 5/1 to open the scoring, and 5/2 to score in a Uruguay win. Both sides yielded over 2.5 goals in their opening fixtures, and it is evens for the same outcome in the Arena de Sao Paulo.

The sides have met ten times, with 2-1 the final score on five occasions (three for England, two for Uruguay), adding appeal to the 8/1 on England to maintain that trend.

Odds are subject to change.
