Oscar Tabarez out to stifle England

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez claims that his team needs to stifle England's attackers if they want to win Thursday's World Cup showdown.

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez has claimed that his team must stifle England's attackers if they want to win Thursday's crucial World Cup showdown in Sao Paulo.

Both sides head into the match needing a victory after losing their respective opening fixtures of the tournament.

Despite Uruguay boasting two dangerous forwards in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, Tabarez has revealed that his players will need to adopt a more disciplined approach versus the Three Lions.

"We are going to change everything. We need to win, so do England," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "We have to change our attitude and put different measures in place. And we are aware of that.

"England were unlucky against Italy. Their attackers are very powerful. They have a lot of young players with great potential. They are very fast and make quick decisions - they get into the right areas. We will have to look to limit that."

Uruguay striker Suarez recently confirmed that he was '100% fit' to face England following doubts over whether he would be able to take part.
