thumbnail Hello,

A long punt up field from Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera was inadvertently flicked on by captain Steven Gerrard to allow Luis Suarez to score a late winner in a 2-1 defeat

England defender Phil Jagielka acknowledged the manner of Luis Suarez's late winner in Sao Paulo was hard to take.

Suarez struck with just five minutes left to give Uruguay a 2-1 win on Thursday, a result that kept their own World Cup hopes alive and virtually ended England's despite Wayne Rooney's earlier equaliser.

A hopeful long punt from Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera caught England out, with Suarez pouncing on an inadvertent Steven Gerrard flick-on to fire past Joe Hart.

"Very disappointed [to concede that way], obviously, as a defender," Jagielka told ITV. That's the last thing you want to see. As you can tell by my voice, everybody's absolutely devastated in there.

"You just hope [Suarez] misses. He obviously finds the target and they win the game."

Jagielka was also downcast on England's unlikely chances of reaching the last 16, claiming they have a "small chance" and that he was not expecting anything.

He did, however, emphasise the importance of their final Group D match against Costa Rica.

"We've got to go out there and put out a performance against Costa Rica," he continued.
