England vs. Uruguay is hardly the most decorated fixture in world football, but this week, they meet for arguably their biggest game in history—a crucial World Cup group game that feels like it could be a winner-takes-all affair.

They've met 10 times in the past—only twice in World Cups—with Uruguay edging the head-to-head by four wins to England's three.
