Uruguay really got it right tactically. Pressed our defenders hard, high up the pitch, correctly realising that they aren't quite technically good enough to cope with that. Put extra men in midfield, used Cavani to disrupt Gerrard.

But still in both games it was incredibly close, they should have had their captain sent off for a second yellow card, Rooney hit the bar in both games we came close and we have a very new, young side in transition.

2010 was much more depressing even though we stayed in for longer, because we were so dull and uninspiring and playing much lower quality teams.
