Friends to foes: Liverpool teammates Steven Gerrard (L) and Luis Suarez after their FIFA World Cup match.


Sao Paulo: England captain Steven Gerrard regretted his error that led to Uruguay's winning goal on Thursday, saying inexperience had cost his team, who now need a miracle to stay in the World Cup.

Luis Suarez, back in action just four weeks after knee surgery, scored twice in the tense Group D encounter, either side of Wayne Rooney's first ever World Cup goal in Sao Paulo.

For the second goal, Gerrard mistimed a header in midfield and it fell to Liverpool team-mate Suarez, who smashed home the winner five minutes from time.
