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

Suarez, Cavani and Nunez set to lead Uruguay attack vs South Korea

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

76 mins: Smart defending from Bentancur to read Son’s cross and cut it out at the front post. Then, Nunez is unable to control a long pass forward.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

74 mins: A triple change for South Korea. Among that, Kim Seung-gyu is off and will be left with the memory of his first-half miss. Cho Gue-sung will now lead the line.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

71 mins: And then almost a chance for South Korea! Son just punts a pass forward with his left foot and with Kim Seung-gyu chasing, Rochet has to head clear from outside of his box.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

68 mins: Oooh. Almost from Cavini. His first touch buys him a step of space, but his shot is well blocked by the wall of red shirts that quickly swarmed around him.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

67 mins: Dear, dear, dear. Bentancur floats a pass out of play and as time goes on I am feeling less and less optimistic about a breakthrough.

Some attacking quality, please!

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

63 mins: Chance! Out of nowhere too, that’s what Nunez gives you. The ball breaks to Godin and he spots Nunez on the left. He benefits from Kim Min-jae slipping, and Nunez is able to carry towards goal on the angle. Suarez was at the back post but Nunez was unable to pick him out and South Korea clear.

Now here comes Cavani. As expected, he replaces Suarez.

Kim Min-jae has stayed down, too, after an awkward landing.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

60 mins: This second half has been very low on quality. Edinson Cavini is coming on – it has to be for Suarez.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

57 mins: Son is back up. Caceres is booked. Danny Murphy is complaining about football boots without laces.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

55 mins: Suarez looks short once again as he struggles to keep a ball in play on the byline – how much longer will he stay on the pitch?

Caceres then crunches into Son, who stays down and looks to be in pain. Worrying moment for South Korea.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

52 mins: Penalty? Nope. From a South Korea corner, Kim Jin-su goes down under the challenge of Bentancur as he looked to beat Rochet to the ball. Not enough in that.
