FIFA World Cup 2022
Uruguay vs South Korea
Education City Stadium, Doha
The wait is almost over for Group H participants as Uruguay prepares itself to take on South Korea at the Education City Stadium in Doha. With Ghana and Portugal among the four teams in Group H, we can expect a ripper of a contest as only two teams will proceed in the Round of 16. Uruguay is the two-time World Cup winner, whereas South Korea was the 2022 semi-finalist, and there’s no better match for the Group H opener. There’s no doubt that Group H will be the most unpredictable group in the ongoing FIFA World Cup. Though Uruguay are the favorites to win, the last time these two sides played, South Korea won 2-1.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Uruguay - Coming off a Decent Win Over Canada (WLWDW)
Going in the contest, Uruguay is coming off a win against Canada (2-0) in which Nicolas de la Cruz and Darwin Nunez scored goals. At the moment, Uruguay stands 14th in the FIFA standings and is the favorite to win. For the upcoming game, Ronaldo Araujo and Nicolas de la Cruz will be unavailable due to injuries and constraints. The spotlight will be on Nunez, who has been performing quite consistently in the English Football league. Nunez has only made 13 appearances for Uruguay and has only scored three goals. Luis Suarez, the nation’s all-time record scorer, who is now playing for Nacional in the Uruguayan Primera División, will undoubtedly get a lot of attention. The former Barcelona player has eight goals in 14 games and is attempting to get his 69th goal in 135 international appearances for his nation in this encounter.
Predicted Opening Lineup for Uruguay
Rochet; Varela, Godin, Gimenez, Olivera; Bentancur, Valverde, Vecino; Pellistri, Suarez, Nunez.
South Korea - Recovering from the Injury Blow to Ronald Araujo (WWDWD)
Going in the game, South Korea is coming off a win against Iceland (1-0) and Cameron (1-0). In the game against Iceland, Min-Kyu Song scored the only goal of the contest, and that too in the 33rd minute of play. Korea qualified for the World Cup very easily, defeating Iran, Syria, and Lebanon to complete their qualification procedure. They did, however, lose 3-0 to Japan in the EAFF East Asian Cup final a few months ago. On the other hand, they will find it difficult to repeat that here. For tomorrow’s game, South Korea has managed to cover all its tracks; however, Heung-Min Son is likely to miss out due to an eye injury.
Predicted Opening Lineup for South Korea
Kim Seung-gyu; Yoon Jong-gyu, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-su; Jung Woo-young, Hwang In-beom, Kwon Chang-hoon; Hwang Hee-chan, Hwang Ui-jo, Son Heung-min.
