For the first time, an England World Cup game meant nothing. No chance of qualifying. No danger of being knocked out on pens. England were toothless this World Cup. And here, up against a team who could afford to showboat their way into the second phase they were goalless too.
Uruguay were far from toothless, their win over the Italians overshadowed by Suarez's urge to eat the flesh of his opponents. Problems there. A big ban heading his way. Whatever Uruguay do now wont make the headlines like Suarez has made the headlines. A shame. Beating their European opponents is no small feat, for a nation of barely three million. A pity that one of that three million can't keep his mouth shut.
