Oscar Tabarez talks up England's attacking quality ahead of Uruguay's meeting with the Three Lions tonight.

Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez has talked up England's attacking quality ahead of tonight's meeting between the two teams.

Both sides suffered defeat in their opening group games of the World Cup, but the Three Lions had more to be optimistic about following a dynamic display against Italy.

"I think England played a good game against Italy," Tabarez is quoted as saying by FourFourTwo. "In fact, we have discussed in part of our planning the data we have collected there.

"This is a team that has a lot of attacking quality and has very good players. They have four players who play very fast and capable of scoring, with an attitude of playing very direct.

"And a very pragmatic organiser of big game experience and full force in Gerrard, with a defence that is very important in the team attack and all that was showed in the game against Italy."

England round off their group stage campaign with a match against Costa Rica next week.
