Gerrard's header plays Suarez in, great finish. Could be game over.

9:41pm

GOAL Uruguay

9:33pm

Sturridge nearly gets a second - placed a shot bringing a great save out of Muslera.

9:32pm

Johnson raids down the right and does well to ride a challenge to cross for Rooney to stab home from close range.

9:31pm

GET IN! GOAL England

9:30pm

Sturridge does well to manufacture some space on the edge of the box but his shot is easy for the keeper.

9:23pm

Gerrard booked

9:18pm

Sterling's knee makes contact with Perriera's temple - looked a sore one.

9:09pm

Muslera makes a save from Rooney - good work from Baines on the left. 

9:08pm

England sliced wide open.

9:08pm

Cavani threads a shot wide. Should have scored.

9:05pm

Hart makes another fine save - Suarez's corner nearly finds the net. Is there any chance of putting someone on the near post???

9:01pm

8:54pm

8:53pm

8:52pm

Can England get back into it??

8:46pm

8:40pm

Sturridge sees a shot beaten away at the near post by Muslera - great run from the ex-Bolton loanee.

8:39pm

Cavani dinks a great cross in for Suarez, who escapes the shackles of Jagielka to head past Hart. Lovely finish - but it's a huge blow for England.

8:38pm

GOAL Uruguay

8:36pm

Sturridge tries his luck from 35 yards - high, wide and not very handsome.

8:34pm

England finishing the half well. Rooney's header the closest anyone has got.

8:31pm

Rooney heads against the crossbar from close range. So close.

8:28pm

Godin should be off - he's already on a yellow and just checked Wellbeck.

8:27pm

More pressure form Uruguay - Suarez's corner hit over the top by Cavani.

8:25pm

Suarez lofts a free kick into the danger zone but Hart does well to claim the ball.

8:21pm

Great backheel from Baines to find Sterling - nothing to choose between the two teams at the moment, though. 

8:17pm

Sturridge's shot deflected over the bar - England putting the pressure on.

8:15pm

The ball drops invitingly for Rodriguez - he blasted a shot at goal but it sailed just over the top.

8:12pm

It's been a decent start for England, hasn't it?

8:09pm

Rooney curls a free kick round the wall but it drifts just wide. Agonisingly close.

8:05pm

Corner nearly catches Hart out - Suzrez curled it into his near post and forced the England keeper into a save.

8:04pm

Suarez gets round the outside and tries to cut a cross back. First glimpse of the Liverpool striker.

8:02pm

Baines nearly plays Sturridge in with a cleverly disguised ball. Uruguay keeper Muslera nearly spilled the ball too.

8:00pm

7:59pm

So Rooney keeps his place, a really attacking line-up from Roy Hodgson.

7:58pm

Thanks Liam - feel free to interject with some witty banter as you continue to "reasearch" the pubs and clubs of Bolton.

7:55pm

Right, time for me to hand over to my esteemed colleague, Bolton News football writer Marc Iles who will keep you up to date with all the action in Sao Paulo, fingers crossed all round, squeaky bum time etc etc

7:51pm

I also think England can do it tonight, if they go out with the same attitude as they did against the Italians, they should be too much for a weakened Uruguay, but as we have learnt over the years, they will never make it easy for us...I'm going for 2-1 with Rooney to score 

7:48pm

This place is packed, we've got New Order's World in Motion setting us up nicely with ten minutes until the big kick off....

The Bolton News:

7:41pm

That's Kevin Hayes from Farnworth getting his face painted. He is also feeling very confident about England's chances tonight, he think Raheem Sterling is the man for the three lions, telling me he "absolutely loves him."

7:39pm

The Bolton News:

7:29pm

He also told me that although he has work tomorrow, if England win he may stay out and party, good lad 

7:28pm

The fans are up for this one, just spoke to Ian Carolan from Breightmet, he said: "I'm confident, going for 2-0 with Rooney to score, the team looked good against Italy."

7:19pm

Carnival atmosphere in the Elephant and Castle already, loud music and full of optimistic England fans, many having a 'nerve steadier' pint.

6:49pm

While Marc will be bringing you updates from the on-field action tonight, I (Liam Thorp) will be soaking up the atmosphere in the town centre, where nerves are bound to be frayed.

6:38pm

Good evening and welcome to World Cup Live - England v Uruguay
