Jagielka's Disappointment

Phil Jagielka conceded that England have only a ‘small chance’ of progressing into the World Cup knockout phase following Thursday’s damaging 2-1 defeat to Uruguay.

The Three Lions stand on the brink of elimination after suffering their second successive loss at the tournament.

England’s only chance of advancing into the last-16 stage is to win against Costa Rica in their final Group D fixture and hope that Italy also beat Costa Rica on Friday and then Uruguay next Tuesday.

"There's a small chance, I suppose,” said Jagielka, who completed the full 90 minutes in Sao Paulo. "We're not exactly expecting anything like that. We've got to go out there and hopefully put in a performance against Costa Rica."

Luis Suarez's second strike of the game secured the victory with just six minutes remaining.

The striker had earlier put the South Americans ahead in the first half before Wayne Rooney equalised with a quarter of an hour left.

Speaking about the game’s decisive third goal, Jagielka added: "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."
