Fernando Muslera

Calm and mostly untroubled. Made fine save from Rooney from point-blank range early in second half, no chance with the goal 6

Martín Cáceres

Was lively early on after a poor game against Costa Rica. Still looked vulnerable, as a crude hack on Welbeck demonstrated 6

José María Giménez

In only his third international appearance, put in an industrious, unfussy display with some timely interventions 7

Diego Godín

Fortunate to stay on after another bookable foul followed his yellow card. But mostly kept tight on England’s front men 5

Álvaro Perreira

Another drafted in after the Costa Rica loss. Tidied up well in defence. Hurt in collision with Sterling but battled on 7

Álvaro González

Drafted in on the right side of midfield, pushed up on Baines and mostly bested him and gave Cavani attacking options 6

Egidio-Arévalo Ríos

A notable presence. Kept tight on Rooney and linked up well at times with Lodeiro. A competent, muscular display 7

Cristían Rodríguez

Might have done better with 15th-minute chance that he blasted narrowly over. Kept quite narrow in the midfield three 6

Nicolás Lodeiro

Played his part in Uruguay edging control in midfield. Linked up well with Suárez and Cavani when given the chance 7

Edinson Cavani

A performance full of guile and influence, dropping back where needed and carving out space. Delightful cross for Suárez’s first goal 8

Luis Suárez

A menacing presence, with corners as much as his goal threat. Kept quiet for spells yet took his two chances with typical aplomb 8


Joe Hart

Complacent when almost caught out by Suárez corners early in each half. Did better when catching a swirling tricky cross 6

Glen Johnson

Had his moments going forward, setting up the goal and linking up well with Sturridge and Sterling, but vulnerable at the back 6

Gary Cahill

Mostly steady but still out-thought by Uruguay’s front men at vital times. Two fine defensive headers late on 6

Phil Jagielka

Paid a heavy price for indecision that left Suárez in space to score. Determined, but uncomfortable in possession at times 5

Leighton Baines

Grew into the game after a scratchy first-half showing at both ends. Was a more useful attacking outlet after half-time 6

Steven Gerrard

Sprayed some good passes but struggled for consistent impact. Booked for a foul on Rodriguez, then at fault for second goal 5

Jordan Henderson

A neat and tidy enough performance against opponents that pressed hard in midfield. A couple of telling interceptions 6

Raheem Sterling

Was much more tightly policed than against Italy, but still eager to take people on and wriggle into dangerous areas before going off 6

Wayne Rooney

Quiet in first half until heading Gerrard’s cross against the bar. His influence grew though, and effort rewarded with a goal 7

Danny Welbeck

Always looking for passes from fellow attackers, without showing the freedom or verve he had in Manaus 6

Daniel Sturridge

Another whose influence increased after half-time. Always looked to drive forward assertively and had a key role in goal 7
