Uruguay will try to start on the right foot

The World Cup is already alive. After the initial whistle on Sunday, November 20, a flood of matches will cover each soccer day. And Thursday, November 24, will not be the exception, since that day the "celeste" will face South Korea in what will be the debut of both in this competition.

Uruguay is always one of the best positioned in sports predictions, since its history, current figures and its famous "Charrúa claw" always place it under the title of being a feared rival.

On the other side will be South Korea, a team that already gave rise to talk in the Asian Qualifiers and that according to many specialists could become one of the surprises in this World Cup.

The truth is that the match, which will correspond to the first date of Group H, will represent 90 very interesting minutes for the world of football.

This is how Uruguay arrives

This Selection changed its coach in the middle of the South American Qualifiers. Other than that, the mentality of the team remains the same.

With a defense that stands out for its dedication, with a midfield that never gives up a ball and with an offense that everyone would like to have, Uruguay always generates expectations.

That is why in the Qatar 2022 World Cup forecasts the “celeste” is located, at least, among the favorites to qualify for the round of 16.

Obviously it won't be easy, especially since the group stage consists of three games and there is no margin for error in the middle of a group that will also have Portugal and Ghana.

This is how South Korea arrives

The “Asian tigers”, as this National Team is nicknamed, are preparing to face what will be their 11th participation in a World Cup.

It is true that the mythical performance in the 2022 World Cup allowed this country to finish in 4th place, being a historic campaign.

That is why those technically directed by the Portuguese Paulo Bento will try to replicate that epic and give the big blow in the Qatar 2022 World Cup forecasts , wanting to lead South Korea once again to be among the best.

Obviously this is football and there is nothing impossible, although it is clear that it will be complex from the start, due to the area that he has to integrate.

Background between both

These teams have a long history of confrontations, since they have seen each other on a total of 8 occasions.

In friendly matches there are 4 Uruguayan victories (2-1 in 2002, 2-0 in 2003 and 2007 and 1-0 in 2014), a Korean victory (2-1 in 2018) and a draw (2-2 in 1982). .

The history is completed by two matches won by the South Americans in the framework of the 1990 and 2010 World Cups. It was 1-0 in Italy and 2-1 in South Africa.

With all this background it is clear that sports forecasts are in favor of the "Charrúas", but this is football and the word is never said until the referee ends the match.

The magnifying glass on...

The striker Luis Suárez, who after his years of European glory decided to return to Uruguayan football where he became champion with Nacional.

The "gunslinger" demonstrated his talent in teams like Ajax from the Netherlands, Liverpool from England, Barcelona and Atlético Madrid from Spain. But he decided that it was time to go back and return to the club that saw him born.

In Uruguay, the public of the "bag" received him up to expectations and he proved to be at a very good level. He scored 8 goals and was decisive in the classic and also in the final against Liverpool.

Now, with renewed energy and with the illusion of always, this experienced footballer will try, once again, to be decisive for his country in a World Cup.

The magnifying glass on...

The midfielder Son Heung-Min, who works for Tottenham, will be the main figure for South Korea in this new World Cup.

This footballer has a long career: at the age of 16 he was signed by Hamburg in Germany, where he played in team II during promotion and then made his Bundesliga debut with the top squad. In German territory he also wore the colors of Bayer Leverkusen, until in the 2015/2016 season he landed at Tottenham, where he is a true benchmark for the team.

In addition, with the National Team of his country he won the bronze medal in the 2011 Asian Cup and the silver medal in the 2015 Asian Cup.

Therefore, with his experience, this 30-year-old will try to take South Korea as high as possible.
