England stand on the brink of a early World Cup exit after Luis Suarez scored twice to give Uruguay a 2-1 victory in Sao Paulo.

Wayne Rooney looked to have snatched a draw for England after he equalised Suarez's first-half opener, but with five minutes left on the clock Steven Gerrard accidentally his Liverpool club-mate through and he beat Joe Hart to give the Uruguayans the win.

Only a minor miracle will keep England in the tournament now. If Costa Rica and Italy draw on Friday afternoon, or the Central Americans beat Cesare Prandelli's team, England will be eliminated with one match to spare.

If Italy won both their remaining games, Uruguay, Costa Rica and England will be tied for second spot, provided that Hodgson's men win their final match.

Colombia made it two wins out of two in Group C as they battled to a 2-1 victory over Ivory Coast.

After a first half notable primarily for Teofilo Gutierrez's fluffed attempt to put Colombia ahead on 28 minutes, the match burst into life in the second half.

Greece and Japan have their World Cup futures hanging in the balance after drawing 0-0 in a dour match in Natal.

After being reduced to 10 men after only 38 minutes when Kostas Katsouranis was shown a second yellow card for two desperate lunges, Greece played for the draw but in truth Japan rarely looked like breaking them down.
