Uruguay vs South Korea LIVE World Cup 2022: Latest score and updates


The Biggest Upsets In World Cup History

Uruguay play South Korea in Group H of the World Cup in Qatar.

Two-time winners of the tournament, La Celeste are seen as dark horses this year, with Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez in fine form, while veteran forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will look for one last hurrah.

Federico Valverde might be more important than anybody, and the Real Madrid midfielder will be key to dictating the tempo against South Korea. Son Heung-min is hoping to play despite suffering a face fracture in the build-up for the tournament while playing for Tottenham in the Champions League, meaning he will wear a face mask – at least during the group stage.

Both sides will be confident they can not only qualify but finish top of a wide-open group that also includes Ghana and Portugal.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

33 mins: HUGE CHANCE! South Korea should be ahead. It’s a lovely move and they cut Uruguay open – but when the ball was squared to Hwang Ui-jo he can’t keep his shot down! It’s lifted over the bar from in front of the goal and that’s the best chance of the game so far.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

24 mins: After South Korea’s good start it feels like Uruguay have settled and are taking control of this. That may suit South Korea though as their shape looks compact and they will be able to threaten through Son on the break.
