Dominic is off to watch the match. You can do the same here with Simon Burnton:
Dommy boy! What are your views on Henderson? I can't make my mind up on him. I know Gerrard probably prefers playing with him but I'd much rather see Wilshere or Lampard in the middle of the park. Is he good enough for the world stage?
Are you able to say what England's main focus has been in training this week? Have they looked to cement a defensive shape with this new system, worked more on the attacking threat the front four can pose, set pieces (I was disappointed with our attacking set pieces, not just the delivery but the lack of imagination to what we were attempting).
Some highlights of that 1966 match, complete with a great soundtrack:
I was trying to find out when was the last time England beat Uruguay in a World Cup. The answer is NEVER. Actually is not that bad; they met only twice. Uruguay won 4-2 in 1954 and they drew 0-0 in Wembley in the opening match of the 1966 World Cup.

While I'm sure it's mainly fuelled by the anger and disappointment with the "golden generation", do you think that the lack of competition for places in the side is helping to prolong the question over Rooney's place in the team? There's little else to talk about in terms of the starting XI.
A small number of players could potentially push for a place (Lallana, Barkley, Oxlade-Chamberlain, and maybe Wilshere), but otherwise there seems to be a real lack of options.
Dom, is there any prospect of playing Wilshere and going 4-3-3 thereby engendering some playmaking characteristics from deeper, as well as providing Gerrard with some cover (which we know he needs from his Liverpool performances) - he's good in a three, less so in a two. Presumably that would mean dropping Welbeck.
Dominic, how do you think the decision to leave Ashley Cole at home is standing up? Would you have preferred to see Ashley Cole in there against that savvy Italian side? Leighton Baines is a fine defender but, given he's no spring chicken at 29, I'm thinking it might have been wiser to use Cole's experience while he can still cut it and have Shaw as his main back up, seeing as he's clearly the future for England in that position. I'm not sure how Baines fits into the wider England plan.
Why Henderson? And why not Barkley?
Dominic, when Luis Suarez scores, will he celebrate in front of his club colleagues?
For all the talk of a great and unpredictable World Cup, Germany are still going to walk it aren't they? How will we handle that sort of anti-climax?
Yesterday I saw the England players arriving at their hotel. Roy Hodgson was wearing a pair of sunglasses that made him look supreme. Half rock star, half mysterious danger man. He had the look of someone you wouldn’t mess with. Did you see them and do you think he should wear them on the touchline tonight?
By the way Dommo... can you verify for the public if you have Union Jack or Flag of St George's underwear on.
Dominic, there has been a lot of discussion with regards to Rooney's poor record at World Cups, his best role in the team and last but not least whether he should even get a start. What would interest me though is what his team-mates perception are of him? Is he a popular member of the team or is he regarded as a bit of a moody superstar who hasn't actually played like a superstar?
Rickie Lambert has had a fantastic couple of seasons. The fact that he can act as a target man and has a pair of nifty feet should see him in the starting XI. Is Rooney's reputation keeping Lambert out, or is Hodgson's formation not suited to him? Or is he just not good enough?
Dom. It's going to be shit, isn't it?
Will there be a change at full-back for England with the defensively better Phil Jones coming in for Glen Johnson? After all the primary reason that Jones was taken to Brazil was because "he could do a job at right back".
Do you think this World Cup has come round to early for this young England side? Do you think after a couple seasons playing Champions League football, the younger players will be in better shape for the next Euros instead?
Will England's approach suit Uruguay better than Costa Rica's? Hodgson says he will go on the offensive and Uruguay are built for counterattacking. Costa Rica put five at the back and made it hard for a Suarez-less team to break through.
Dominic, although his performance against Italy was sub-par, if England win tonight would you consider dropping Gerrard for the final game to rest him for the potential round of 16 clash?
With all the fatigue and cramp that occurred in the first game, along with the defensive frailties down the left flank, do you think there is a chance of someone like James Milner starting, leaving out one of Welbeck, Rooney, or Sterling to come on as an impact player?
People hoping we'll win and not expecting it. Like normal fans supporting a half-decent side who have the players to pull off some shocks. Loving it!
Possibility of 4-3-2-1?
Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines
Henderson Gerrard Lallana/someone
What is your view on Leighton Baines? Everton seem to build a team and style around him and I suspect he struggles with England because they don't do the same. Italy seemed to target him (and/or the left side) to good effect on Saturday.
Can England win WITHOUT Rooney and Gerrard?
England wont need luck. "Hodg-ers" will have Steeled the 4 man defence, galvanized a 3 man midfield and will play Sterling, Rooney & Sturridge up front who will electrify the spectacle. All England... it will be... All England
Can you guys tell me why the debate rages on about where Rooney should play or if he plays at all? It seems that we have two world-class No9s (Squawka suggests Daniel Sturridge is more prolific than Cavani) in Sturridge and Wayne Rooney. So who cares if one starts and one's on the bench to start, as long as they're working to a strategy. Brazil is hot, muggy and inhospitable. Why not run Sturridge into the ground (and by extension the Uruguay defence) for 55 minutes and then let a fresh Rooney loose and run him into the ground for the remaining 35?
