Uruguay and Korea left the goal at zero

The light blues had better chances than Korea, which looked better planted in its lines

In their World Cup debut, Uruguay and South Korea shook hands and agreed to a 0-goal draw.

This tie gives each one a point and complicates things for the sky-blues, who during the match had several chances to move the score.

The South American team had several clear ones, such as two shots on the post that almost went inside the Korean goal.

The match was in streaks between both teams, which had divided moments, which made more than one of their seats jump.

Korea wanted to start a physical game trying to take advantage in this aspect before veteran players like Diego Godín.

But he found a Uruguayan team well prepared to repel his rival's weak attacks.

It was Fede Valverde who had the clearest for the sky-blue, with a long move from José María Giménez, who controlled with his right and finished off with his left over the rival goal.

The actions of the first half continued and this time it was the turn of the Asians, with Uijo Hwang, who finished with a shot over the crossbar.

In a perfect triangulation of the Korean team, but he was alone and the pass went nowhere.

The first half of the match ended with the clearest chance of the match. A header from Diego Godín that crashed into the base of the goal post defended by Seunggyu Kim.


The second half began calmer for both squads, without generating so many dangerous situations in the areas.

But Uruguay kept trying, Darwin Núñez had it close after a cut by the Korean defense and a long shot from the Liverpool striker that almost made the stadium scream.

Coach Diego Alonso called Edinson Cavani onto the field, who came on to replace Luis Suárez. But the light blue still did not decipher Korea.

In the last minutes of the game, Valverde smashed a shot off the post in one of his now classic lashes.

While Korea kept trying to counterattack, but their forwards lacked speed in their plays.
