The Liverpool forward, less than a month after knee surgery, netted either side of a Wayne Rooney goal to put England on the verge of first-round elimination.
After seeing his vision come true, the 27-year-old is now dreaming of another Group D victory, over Italy next Tuesday.
"This is incredible. I had told my teammates that I had a dream that I was going to score two goals in this match," he told Univision.
"We had to win this match and we did it playing like Uruguay does in these kind of games. Now we have to think about Italy, another very important rival.
"This victory is for all those people who said so many bad things about the team, it's for them."
England need Italy to win their remaining Group D games against Costa Rica and Uruguay, and also beat the latter next Tuesday, to stand any chance of progressing to the knockout stages in Brazil.
