Liverpool Stars with Flop & Man of the Match Displays

Cavani Suarez UruguayEngland are on the brink of elimination from the World Cup 2014 after losing their second group game and now depend on results from other fixtures to survive.
All the pre-match talk was about how England will/can stop Uruguay and Liverpool talisman Luis Suarez.
However, the European Golden Boot winner was unstoppable even though he was not fully fit. Suarez netted two brilliant goals to earn all three points for National side and kept their World Cup dream alive.
A shock defeat in the first fixture against Costa Rica means that they still have a big task left against Italy in the final group game.
No points for guessing who the man of the match was as the Liverpool superstar showed the world why he is one of the best.
On the other hand, the flop of the game was none other than another Liverpool star, England captain Steven Gerrard.
Although, a lot of blame goes to England’s mindless defending as well but Gerrard was of no use in his Liverpool role for England side.
He was effective for the Reds as a regista but was surely their weak link in midfield as far as defense is concerned. Yet Roy Hodgson opted to use him there and it backfired.
Gerrard put in a half hearted tackle, an unsuccessful one, that led to Uruguay’s opening goal and was responsible for the second as his header fell to an unmarked Luis Suarez when England’s defense went asleep.
By some distance, this was the worst World Cup match Gerrard played in 3 tournaments. England need a miracle to progress but they really do not deserve to go any further in the competition.
