Wayne Rooney scored his first goal in the World Cup finals but England were beaten 2-1 by Uruguay.

After failing to find the net in eight games spanning three tournaments, the Manchester United man netted from close range in the second half.

He had come close to scoring earlier on three occasions.

However Rooney will take little consolation in his personal milestone after England's second successive defeat.
