The usual suspects will probably be blamed for this but, England were eliminated because of that defense. Jags, Johnson and Baines have all had awful tournaments and Gerrard did not do a great job offering them protection.

Gerard also sent multiple crosses way wide in the latter stages of the game. Looked completely rattled.

I hate that little pissant Suarez but man hes an incredible player.

Johnson wasn't that shabby, though, he didn't give what expected but at least was average-ish in both games
Jagielka is just embarassing, alwasy out of position, no quality outside of being big and tall
The second goal of Italy and the first of Uruguay are basically a carbon copy with jagielka that in uruguay goal clearly lose his man completely ignoring him while he tun behind him(at least in the goal in the game vs italy cahill had the excuse that it was on a fast counterattack and defense was off balance as  whole), he should have learnt from the previous game
Baines is just terrible on defensive side, that's why he should push on offense all the game, while he didn't attack at all in these 2 games and stayed back, being completely fooled vs itay and utterly useless against uruguay
England lacked someone that could make the fast orizontal transition from one side to the other of the field(ala schweinsteiger) and/or someone that could slow the pace and suddenly accelerate it finding the man wide open in the deep space on the wings or in the box(ala pirlo/xavi); Gerrard has never been that kind of guy, and he has never been a defensive midfielder... he has always been a guy that could do a bit of everything, but he can't carry all the load of defensive and offensive phases alone on his back(given that the rest of the midfield wasn't good on defensive side and on offesne the other midfielders/wingers were only capable to do some useless dribbling to then collide in the adversaries defenses and be forced to shoot from the distance, return back losing ground or lose the ball except the few times where england was capable to be dangerous)
I'm not sold on henderson playing in the centre of the midfield for what I have seen here, he should either play on one side of the midfield, behind the centre-forward or just sit on the bench, imho. He doesn't offer much on defensive side, and on offense he looks more like a guy that search for his own personal goal more than assisting the mates or fitting the playmaker role. These kinds of guy does not have success at national team level, as you can't build a definite style of game around them

No one is really to blame, this England team just isn't good enough to beat the teams they've played. I said months ago that this is a transition team, and we actually played better than I expected, keeping the ball on the ground more, for one. There's just very little creativity. 
Italy and Uruguay were better than this England, that's the main reason.

-Prandelli you suck as coach
-Refree rigged the game to let Uruguay goes to next round

He's such a wanker. Between the three biting incidents (!), he's also been suspended for racially abusing a black player, and of course the 2010 World Cup where he intentionally cheated and got away with it, aka the modern day Hand of God moment. I'm not even a big soccer fan but he might be my most hated athlete. Everyone dogs on Ronaldo for being a douche but I think Suarez easily takes the douche crown.
