After disappointing losses in their first two matches, England and Uzbekistan find their hopes of qualification hanging by a thread when they travel to Suez for their final group game.

The game
England-Uzbekistan, Suez, Friday 2 October, 21:30 (local time)

The stakes
With Ghana and Uruguay battling it out for the group's top spot in Ismailia, the place of England and Uzbekistan's defeats, the two teams will have a change of scenery when they visit Suez for what could be their final game of the tournament. There is still an outside chance of a place in the last 16, but they must rely on other results going their way. Both coaches have vowed to go for the win, but the Three Lions may be handed an advantage with the central Asians' key players Sherzodbek Karimov and Gulom Urunov missing through suspension.

The stat
761 - The number of minutes that England have gone without scoring at the FIFA U-20 World Cup. After drawing a blank against Uruguay and Ghana, the run has now stretched to eight matches, with the last player scoring being Liverpool's Jamie Carragher against Argentina at Malaysia 1997.  Carragher's Anfield team-mate Martin Kelly is looking to break the deadlock. "I've gone close, but not close enough. We've got one more game left and hopefully that will be the one where I get my name on the scoresheet," the big defender told FIFA.com.

The words
"We want to score goals and we want to beat Uzbekistan, but to do that we're going to have to perform a lot better than we did against Ghana. There's a bout of sickness and diarrhoea in the camp, so I hope that the players are able to recover in time," Brian Eastick, England coach.

"If people watch the England game, you will see how well we can play. We're going to analyse our last game against Uruguay, see where we went wrong and put things right," Akhmad Ubaydullaev, Uzbekistan coach.
