Uruguay v England – Betting Tips
After a good showing against Italy in their opening match in Group D, England will be looking to show their newly found attacking intent once again on Thursday.
World Cup Betting Tips
Uruguay (3.80) v England (2.05); Draw (3.60)
A 3-1 defeat at the hands of Costa Rica may have stunned Uruguay on Saturday, but Oscar Tabarez’s side has been boosted by the news that Luis Suarez has been declared fit for the match.
Uruguay stuttered through qualification with a goal difference of just zero and the South American qualifiers will be without captain Diego Lugano and right back Maxi Pereira through suspension for Thursday’s encounter.
Travelling time around Brazil may be beginning to take it’s toll on la Celeste, but the return of Suarez may be the necessary catalyst to drag Uruguay to a much-improved performance this time around.
Opponents England may still be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but much of the spotlight will be on the selection of Wayne Rooney, who has now gone nine games without a goal at the World Cup finals.
England have scored in each of their last eight World Cup encounters with South American sides and Roy Hodsgon’s interchangability in the forward line should see England netting at least once again today.
Less than 9% of teams have progressed to the last 16 of the World Cup after losing the opening game since the current World Cup format was introduced in 1998 and the Three Lions will need to beat Uruguay if they are to hold any hope of progressing to the next stage of the tournament.
