Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard has warned his teammates that the summer might be long and frustrating, if England crash out early from the World Cup
After Costa Rica won from Uruguay, Group D has become even more complicated. If England lose against Uruguay, only a highly unlikely combination of circumstances will allow them to go into the knockout stages, while a draw would leave them relying on other results. For Uruguay too, its the same case. Simply put, both the nations need to win the game to have a realistic shot at progressing further.
England captain Steven Gerrard acknowledged it and asked his teammates to understand how crucial the match against La Celeste is.
“If I walk past him in the tunnel I will say hello and shake his hand but at that moment I am not really looking for friends or team-mates.
“He knows that once that whistle blows there is no friendship at all between me and Luis Suarez for 90 minutes.”
