FIFA president Sepp Blatter claims that England were "unlucky" in their World Cup defeat against Uruguay.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has claimed that England were "unlucky" in their World Cup Group D defeat against Uruguay.

Luis Suarez scored twice as the Three Lions fell to a 2-1 defeat that has damaged their hopes of reaching the knockout stages.

"I think England were unlucky," BBC Sport quotes Blatter as saying. "England looked like a good team.

"I think Uruguay had a very good goalkeeper and he made some good saves. This is football, these things can happen."

Blatter has recently hinted that he will stand for re-election as FIFA president.
