On Thursday afternoon, England broke the hearts of its fans with a 2-1 loss to Uruguay in the World Cup. After England tied the match in the 75th minute with Wayne Rooney's long-awaited first goal in three World Cups, the Uruguayans still prevailed. It was Liverpool's Luis Suarez, the 2013-14 Premier League goal-scoring leader (31) who connected in both the 39th and 85th minutes to give Uruguay the three points.

During the game, Piers Morgan, the British journalist and former host of CNN's Piers Morgan Live, weighed in. The 49-year-old, whose cover photo and background on Twitter feature pictures of Arsenal, past and present, had this to say:


An unwarranted shot at the nation he used to host a talk show in? A shot at his national soccer team? A cry for pity?

Then Rooney tied the game:


Of course, it was not long before Morgan's dreams were crushed:


Forget Morgan's live tweet of the game. He made a World Cup statement about the United States and England that may very well come true. If the U.S. does make it through to the knockout stage and England does not, should Morgan stick to his guns?

This brings up another point. Morgan must be out of England for him to make such a statement. Could he be in the United States? Definitely not. He was ready to sleep after the game.


Where, oh where, is Piers Morgan?
