The final whistle sounds.

FULL TIME: It's all over in Sao Paulo and a brilliant brace by Suarez has seen off England here. Rooney cancelled out Suarez's first half header, but the Liverpool forward smashed home five minutes from time to seal the victory. England aren't yet eliminated, but it will take quite a mix of results for them to progress to the knockout stages.
