Daniel Sturridge could not hide his emotion after England's 2-1 defeat to Uruguay.
The Liverpool striker played his part during Wayne Rooney's equaliser in the Three Lions' make-or-break clash but failed to find the target during a frustrating night for Roy Hodgson's side.
England are now left with an almost impossible scenario, where qualification from Group D is still mathematically possible - but exceedingly unlikely.
After the defeat, Sturridge could not hide his disappointment on Twitter, apologising to all his fans and admitting he was 'gutted.'
I feel sick right now.Heartbroken I swear down. Sorry to the fans and Everyone back home. It ain't over till it's over. #gutted— Daniel Sturridge (@D_Sturridge) June 19, 2014
England can still qualify if they beat Costa Rica by enough goals to finish with a better goal difference than all their Group D rivals - and if Italy beat both the Uruguayans and Costa Rica.
Anything less, however, and the Three Lions' brief World Cup adventure will be over.
Uruguay took a first-half lead through Luis Suarez, before the same man - Sturridge's Liverpool team-mate - struck late on after an error from Reds (and England) captain Steven Gerrard.

Sturridge's performance could have been better for the Three Lions - but his disappointment may have made him overly apologetic on social media.
As Opta stats show, the 24-year-old completed three successful dribbles and took five shots, also making 50 touches and eight successful final-third passes. Sturridge, then, was a lively presence in Hodgson's side.
Obviously, however, his contribution - along with that of the rest of the England team - did not prove enough to save them from another defeat at this year's World Cup.
