Kyle Walker and Ashley Young have taken to Twitter to issue their support for their England team-mates ahead of Thursday night’s clash against Uruguay in Group D.

Roy Hodgson’s side are bidding to get their World Cup campaign back on track after a 2-1 loss to Italy last Saturday, and the Three Lions come up against a familiar foe in the shape of Luis Suarez.

Here is the best of the Twitter build-up from the professionals – and new Paddy Power customers can back the Three Lions to win at enhanced odds of 5/1 (from 6/5).

Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young ‏(@youngy18) is feeling confident about England’s chances: “Come on England! Encouraging signs from Saturday’s game, can definitely win tonight.”

Former Chelsea midfielder Jody Morris (@morriskid) is backing England to perform: “I’m not sure I’m actually ready for when England actually do play as well as so many people think we did against Italy.”

Scotland international Ross McCormack (@Rossmccormack44) actually wants England to win and progress to the knockout stage: “Believe it or not I hope England go through the group. Always exciting watching them in tournaments. And as it goes I fancy them to do it.”

England fly-half Danny Care (@dannycare) is wishing the Liverpool boys luck for the crunch clash: “Best of luck to the @england lads playing today especially big shout out to @LFC boys @D_Sturridge @sterling31 and the man Stevie G”

Ex-Liverpool forward Neil Mellor (@NeilMellor33) is buoyed by England’s valiant performance against Italy: “Saw enough from Italy game that encouraged me that England can get out of this group!I think we will be clinical tonight and get the victory”

Former England No1 David James (@jamosfoundation) is excited by the Group D encounter: “Looking forward to tonight’s matches, though it is all about England!”

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker (@kylewalker2) wishes his team-mates all the best: “All the best to the boys tonight #comeonengland”

Finally, Brazil legend Cafu (@officialcafu) is cheering on England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard: “Good luck to my friend Gerrard!!! He gave a big welcome in Liverpool!!”
