'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Everton defender disappointed by England defeat

England are on the edge of elimination from the World Cup this morning following our second defeat of the tournament.

Defeat to Italy on Saturday night was followed up with defeat to Uruguay last night.

It leaves England needing snookers to sneak through from the group stages. But it's not impossible.

Italy must beat Costa Rica later today to give England any chance.

Then England must beat Costa Rica next week, with Italy beating Uruguay to give Roy Hodgson's men a lifeline.

All Evertonians will be hoping England will be given a second chance as at the moment, some of the finger pointing and blame is falling upon our very own Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines.

'There's a small chance, I suppose, We're not exactly expecting anything like that. We've got to go out there and hopefully put in a performance against Costa Rica.' Jagielka told the Everton TV.

An unfit Luis Suarez did the damage to England with two goals. The first came when he sneaked in behind Jags to beat Joe Hart with a header.

The Everton defender was caught in two minds, either go with the runner or hold the line, in the end he did neither both playing Suarez onside and gifting him a free header.

The second was late on in the game, again the defence was caught too deep and Suarez broke through one-on-one following a mistaken flick from Gerrard.

He continued: 'I'm very disappointed obviously as a defender, that's the last thing you want to see is a punt down the pitch, a flick on and then a goal. Everyone's obviously absolutely devastated.

'It's a similar story to the Italian game, we played pretty well but obviously not good enough.'
