SAO PAULO - Wayne Rooney finally delivered his first goal for England on the
big stage, coming through despite all the criticism about his lack of
production at this World Cup - and it wasn't enough.
Rooney's equalizer in the 75th minute Thursday gave England hope. Ten
minutes later, Luis Suarez stole the headlines with his second goal, giving
Uruguay a 2-1 victory and pushing England to the brink of elimination.
While Rooney did his part for the Three Lions at last Cheap Air Max Invigor , he still left Itaquerao Stadium in
defeat. He slowly walked to the middle of the field to trade jerseys, then
Early, Rooney leapt several feet in the air and had a perfect first chance
to make a name for himself in the World Cup, but his header hit the bar. He had
another opportunity early in the second half, when goalkeeper Fernando Muslera
- dressed in glaring head-to-toe neon orange - made a sliding stop on Rooney's
shot from point blank.
That left the 28-year-old Rooney with 28 career World Cup
shots Cheap Air Max Fury , just eight on
Then, he found the back of the net.
Rooney was sprinting toward the net and scored from 3 yards out off of his
left foot on a low pass from Glen Johnson. That sent Rooney into a mad
celebration as he pointed to the sky, blew kisses and embraced Johnson before
being chased down by others.
With one last chance on a corner in the fifth minute of injury, Rooney's
ball went off a teammate.
It was Rooney's 40th goal in 94 international appearances, but only his
second in the past eight games.
Rooney has had the support of England coach Roy Hodgson Cheap Air Max Flyknit , who insists there always will be one
player who gets extra scrutiny.
Hodgson celebrated the goal with an emotional outburst as he jumped up and
down on the sideline, arms raised to the sky.
The Manchester United striker out-jumped Uruguay defender Martin Caceres on
Steven Gerrard's free kick in the 31st minute, but his header hit exactly where
the post and upright meet.
While Rooney did make the cross that set up Daniel Sturridge's equalizing
goal in a 2-1 opening loss to Costa Rica on Saturday, three of his own shots
went off target.
BRUSSELS, April 28 (Xinhua) -- The European Union (EU) has signalled it will
take a tough stance in the upcoming Brexit negotiations with the UK.
Guidelines setting out the EU's formal negotiating position are expected to
be agreed at a special summit of EU leaders in Brussels on Saturday.
Speaking ahead of the meeting Cheap Air Max Flair , a senior EU source indicated that
Brussels will "play hard ball" in the talks, reaffirming the bloc's insistence
that the so-called "divorce bill" with the UK must be agreed before further
Brexit-related discussions are held.
The source, speaking on Friday, also made it clear that the two EU agencies
currently based in the UK must be relocated to another member state.
A "no-deal scenario" where the UK would formally exit the EU without
reaching an agreement "would be in no-one's interest" but still cannot be ruled
out, conceded the official.
He also said that in the upcoming talks between the EU and UK "flexibility
and imagination" would be required to prevent the return of a hard customs
border in Ireland.
The official expressed confidence that the EU and each of its remaining 27
members were "totally united" when it comes to their stance on Brexit.
This is likely to be reinforced at Saturday's summit which is expected to
formally adopt the negotiating guidelines Cheap Air Max Dynasty , details of which were sent to EU
capitals a month ago.
The summit in Brussels was called solely to discuss Britain's departure from
the bloc and will serve as a stage for the governments the UK is leaving behind
to talk up unity and warn British officials against sowing division in the hope
of securing a better exit deal.
Michel Barnier, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, will join the other 27
heads of state at the talks at the weekend.
According to the senior EU official, details of the financial agreement on
British withdrawal will have to be agreed before the discussions move to what
he called "phase two" of the talks and the UK's future relationship with the
The source said, "This is one of the key elements. There can be no
discussions on any future relationship without real progress on this aspect of
the UK's withdrawal.
"In other words Cheap Air Max DLX , we have to sort out the immediate
consequences of Brexit before moving to discussions on the future
What he calls "general statements of goodwill" will be "insufficient" and it
will be for the 27 to decide, not the UK, if "sufficient progress" has been
made in the negotiations before moving to the "second phase."
The source said, "This is all about damage limitation and mitigating the
negative consequences of Brexit both for British people and those in the rest
The issue of residency rights for the estimated 3 million EU nationals
currently residing in the UK and also the 2 million Britons who live and work
on mainland Europe is likely to be a potential sticking point in the talks and
the well-placed official said this must be a "priority" in the Brexit
Britain could be required to give EU citizens permanent residency after
living there for five years, in a challenge for May's Conservative
government Cheap Air Max Deluxe , which has vowed
to limit immigration.
The source said, "This affects the lives of millions of people so, yes, this
issue is a top priority."
At the start of the year UK PM Theresa May said that no deal with the EU
would be better than a "bad deal" but the official said he believes the "tone"
of the debate in the UK on this aspect had now "changed."
He said, "The fact that the t. cheap air
