Thursday night was a tough one for England captain Steven Gerrard. Not only did his Three Lions suffer a heartbreaking defeat to Uruguay, but he was also arguably to blame for the crucial goal.

In fact, his night was so bad that Spanish newspaper AS declined to even give him a mark in their post-match ratings.


After Liverpool's painful Premier League finish and a brutal two-game stretch in the World Cup, Gerrard's hopes to salvage something from 2014 now lay firmly on Italian shoulders. If Italy win their last two matches, England can advance on goal difference with a victory against Costa Rica.
