Uruguay vs South Korea LIVE! World Cup 2022 match stream, latest score and goal updates today

The World Cup action continues as Group H gets underway in Al Rayyan this afternoon. Uruguay and South Korea at Education City Stadium, the two-time winners who are tipped for a deep run with a well-balanced squad bursting with talent including the likes of Darwin Nunez and Federico Valverde as well as old heads such as Luis Suarez, who starts up front with Manchester United’s Facundo Pellistri today.

South Korea will be relieved that captain and talisman Heung-min Son is fit to play from the off in this tournament after requiring surgery on facial fractures suffered on Champions League duty with Tottenham. He will wear a protective mask as Paulo Bento’s side seek a positive start in what is a very difficult group on paper.

South Korea have not advanced to the knockout stages since 2010, while Uruguay made the quarter-finals in Russia four years ago before being ousted by eventual champions France. Follow the game below with Standard Sport’s live blog!
