The “Celeste” will bet on a mix between its experienced and its new figures that will populate the midfield on the right foot, as in the case of Rodrigo Betancur and Federico Valverde.

For its part, South Korea will reach its eleventh participation – its best World Cup was the one it organized together with Japan in 2002, when it finished in fourth place. It has not been absent since Spain 1982 and is only surpassed in this aspect by Brazil, Argentina, Spain and Germany.

The arrival in Qatar did not present many setbacks for the Asian team, since it was second in its area, behind Iran, but it took a huge advantage over the third, United Arab Emirates.

South Korea’s all-time top scorer at the FIFA World Cup (3 goals), Son Heung-min scored twice in the 2018 edition and one in 2014; and he could become the second player to score in three different editions of the tournament for the country, after Park Ji-Sung, who did so in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

This is the third match of the FIFA World Cup between Uruguay and South Korea. So far, Uruguay have won the previous two: 1-0 in the 1990 group stage and 2-1 in the 2010 round of 16, the latter with a brace from Luis Suárez.
