Uruguay will target the perfect winning start to their World Cup 2022 campaign when they take on South Korea in their Group H opener on Thursday.

Semi-finalists in 2010, La Celeste have made it out of the group stage in the last two World Cup’s but almost missed out on qualification for Qatar until they won their last four games to secure their spot. Nonetheless, they are favourites alongside Portugal to advance from the group.

But South Korea, who are at their 10th successive World Cup, are no pushovers and should not be underestimated after defeating Germany four years ago. They go in search of making it out of the group stage for the first time since 2010.

When is Uruguay vs South Korea?

Uruguay vs South Korea will kick-off at 1pm on Thursday, November 24 at the 40,000-seated Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar.

This will be the ninth meeting between the two sides, with two of those coming in the World Cup. In 2010, it was Uruguay who knocked out South Korea in the last 16 with a 2-1 win.

The last meeting, however, took place in October 2018 as South Korea claimed their own 2-1 victory in an international friendly at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

Team news

Seven wins from nine games in 2022 has given Uruguay plenty of hope and confidence heading into the World Cup, even if they’ve failed to face any real testing opposition. Nonetheless, Diego Alonso has an impressive array of options at his disposal.

Midfielder Mauro Arambarri Rosa (ankle) has been ruled out of the tournament but Uruguay have still been able to call on the services of veteran strike duo Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. However, the likes of Ronaldo Araujo, Federico Valverde, Rodrigo Bentancur and Darwin Nunez help to balance things out by adding some fresh new energy to the side.

As for South Korea, they will be keen to add to their 11 victories from 15 games already this year, which included a 1-0 victory over Iceland in their only warm-up game earlier this month. Portuguese head coach Paulo Bento will be hoping for more of the same in Group H.

The Taegeuk Warriors survived an injury scare when Son Heung-min’s successful surgery on a fractured eye socket meant he was able to be selected for the World Cup, although whether he’s fit and available for their first game is another question. The same also goes for Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan, who is recovering from a hamstring strain.
