England v Uruguay Team News: Confirmed Starting XIs As Luis Suarez And Wayne Rooney Start

Uruguay and England have announced their team to face England in Group D of the 2014 FIFA World Cup this evening. Read full line-ups here.

URUGUAY:
Starting XI: Muslera, Caceres, Gimenez, Godin, Pereira, Gonzalez, Rios, Lodeiro, Rodriguez, Cavani, Suarez

Substitutes: Martin Silva, Rodrigo Munoz, Sebastian Coates, Jorge Fucile, Walter Gargano, Diego Perez, Gaston Ramirez, Cristhian Stuani, Diego Forlan, Abel Hernandez.

ENGLAND
Starting XI: Hart; Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines; Henderson, Gerrard; Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck; Sturridge

Substitutes: Forster, Foster, Smalling, Jones, Shaw, Lampard, Milner, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Barkley, Lambert

Two players do not feature in the Uruguay squad at all – usual captain Diego Lugano is injured, while Maxi Pereira is suspended after receiving a rather senseless red card against Costa Rica in Uruguay’s first game.

The South American side rather shockingly lost that match 3-1, and know that they are somewhat in last chance saloon already given that both England and Italy will expect to beat Costa Rica.

England are unchanged, but the key question will be whether Wayne Rooney starts on the left or centrally behind Daniel Sturridge.
