By: FPJ Web Desk | November 24, 2022

The South American side started with Darwin Nunez lined up alongside prolific forward Luis Suarez


South Korea tried to create pressure on the South-American team right after the kick-off


The first big chance for Uruguay came in the 22nd minute when Jose Maria Gimenez sent the ball across from the right, catching Korea off guard

Luis Suarez too had a shy at the goal but missed the mark


Son Heung-min, the Korean star made a brilliant run in the 25th minute looking threatening as he rushed past the Uruguayan defenders


The match was bolstered with absolute energy from both teams as they played at the speed of knots, exchanging attacks one after another


Uruguay captain Diego Godin almost found the back of the net in the 43rd minute after he headed the ball off a penalty corner but the ball ricocheted off the post

South Korean Son was the stand-out player for his team creating all sorts of problems for the Uruguayan defence with his lightning pace and willy footwork


The draw leaves both sides' chances of reaching the last 16 wide open, as Uruguay prepare to face Portugal next, while South Korea meet Ghana
