Uruguay 0-0 South Korea LIVE! Stalemate in Group H – World Cup 2022 result, match stream and updates today

16

The World Cup in Qatar saw yet another goalless draw as Group H got under way at Education City Stadium with a 0-0 stalemate between Uruguay and South Korea. Tottenham Hotspur star Heung-min Son played despite recently fracturing an eye socket, but was unable to inspire his nation to victory, despite some bright moments.

Uruguay may well be disappointed with their performance, albeit they twice struck the woodwork in the game; first via a well-timed header from veteran defender Diego Godin, then late on when talented midfielder Federico Valverde struck the post with a powerful long range strike. The result puts pressure on both teams, with Portugal and Ghana to face off later in the day, each now with a golden opportunity to take all three points to top the group.

FULL TIME: Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

Uruguay with late pressure, a corner conceded and a chance to stick it in the mixer, as they say. It’s whipped in from the left right-footed, but collected by goalkeeper Kim.

That is that. We have another 0-0 at this World Cup, I’m afraid.

So close!

90 mins: Wow, that was nearly a spectacular late winner!

Valverde, out of nothing whatsoever, blasts a shot from all of 30 yards, and it rattles the post! Goalkeeper might have had it covered, but what an effort nontheless.

87 mins: Cavani attempts a virtually impossible header, stretching backwards to try and direct it goalwards.

Varela replaces Pellistri, as Cho goes into the book for a clumsy foul.

84 mins: A poor pass from Nunez towards Bentancur lets Uruguay down after building a good move.

Frustration for La Celeste.

82 mins: Oh, Darwin Nunez, that was nice. He tucks inside and powers a shot towards the far corner. Cavani was jumping across trying to get his head on it, as well.

81 mins: A few cynics on social media are suggesting this could be the worse game of the World Cup so far. Hmmm, maybe, maybe.

This is what Uruguay tend to do, though. They’re not brimming with goals, they’re often not pretty at times. But don’t bet against them smashing and grabbing this late on.

79 mins: Vecino and Olivera are replaced by De La Cruz and Vina.
