England's disappointing 2-1 defeat to Uruguay triggered a wave of memes and jokes on social media, with Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez featuring in most of the best ones.

While the loss looks to have ended England's hopes of a successful World Cup in Brazil, Twitter users gave the nation reason to smile once again.

The Liverpool striker struck twice to condemn England to a second straight defeat following the opening 2-1 defeat to Italy, and his performance was made all the more impressive considering he underwent surgery on his knee. The match represented Suarez's first competitive action since going under the knife, yet he still tore a shaky England defence to shreds.

So in an attempt to lighten your mood and lift the state of depression that has fallen over the entire nation (except those who can't stand football) we bring you the best memes that emerged after the final whistle.

England can still qualify for the second round of the World Cup, but they need to rely on Italy to beat both Costa Rica and Uruguay as well as the Three Lions beating Costa Rica on Tuesday.
