The Uruguay-South Korea match in the 2022 World Cup cuts the bar for the Group H confrontations of the tournament, which started last Sunday in Qatar.
Qatar will host the 2022 World Cup from November 20 to December 18, when Uruguay and South Korea will play in Group H, which also includes Portugal and Ghana.
Uruguay seeks to appear at a distinguished level during the 2022 World Cup, especially since this version will be the last for the duo Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, who hope to end their career in the best possible way.

Suarez had previously participated in 3 previous versions of the World Cup, the first in 2010 when he reached the semi-finals with his country before losing to the Netherlands, and then playing for the third place that he lost to Germany, and the same applies to Cavani, who managed to score 5 goals. He made two assists.
However, despite the capabilities that the duo enjoyed and their leadership of their country’s national team in the last three editions together, it is expected that the age factor will play a role in one of them sitting on the bench, with the introduction of new elements such as Darwin Nunez, the 23-year-old Liverpool striker.
On the other hand, South Korea seeks to restore the glories of the past, when it reached the semi-finals in 2002, but the task of the Asian team will not be easy this time, as it collides with two strong teams in this group, namely Uruguay and Portugal.
