SAO PAULO, Brazil (SportingAlert) — As expected, England’s Wayne Rooney returns to his favourite position, right behind the main striker, while Luis Suarez starts for Uruguay in today’s FIFA World Cup clash at Arena de Sao Paulo, in Sao Paulo.
Rooney was deployed on the left side in the defeat to Italy in the opening game and although setting up a goal for Daniel Sturridge, the Manchester United forward was not really effective.
This evening he will move back central with Danny Welbeck on the left and Raheem Sterling on the right.
Daniel Sturridge leads the attack again.
For Uruguay, Suarez returns to the starting lineup, while Diego Forlan was dropped to the bench.
Jose Maria Gimenez, 19, plays in the back for alongside Martin Caceres, Diego Godin and Alvaro Pereira.
Captain Diego Lugano is out with a knee injury, while right-back Maxi Pereira is suspended for this encounter.
