Goalless draw and disappointing performance by Uruguay. The South American team proposed very little for what is expected of it and for what it needs in a group that also has Portugal Y Ghana. South Korea She was a fighter and adds an important point that makes her dream of fighting for a ticket to the round of 16. [Narración y estadísticas: Uruguay 0-0 Corea del Sur]
The game that Uruguay raised was too flat. The only ones who contributed something different were Fede Valverde Y Darwin Nunez, but it gave the sensation of being placed on the blackboard in places where their virtues could not be fully exploited. Korea relied heavily on heung min sonas expected, and stumbled against the rocky Charrúa rear.
The best chance of the game was left by Fede and it came almost at the end of the game. It was a powerful shot from 25 meters that crashed into the crosshead. In the first part, Diego Godin He had also hit the post after heading off a corner.
World Cup debuts are not good for Uruguay, which has only won one of the last eight. A too negative streak from the 1994 World Cup. In Qatar he fell short with what he proposed. Diego Alonso He did not succeed with the approach nor did he give ownership to veterans such as Martin Caceres Y Luis Suarez. The ‘9’ barely participated in the game and was replaced in 64.
Cavani replaced Suárez and provided mobility in Uruguay’s offensive zone. dazzled the young pellistri on the right wing, where the ‘madridista’ version of Valverde was missed. Alonso is likely to move pieces for the next game, in which his life will be played against Portugal Cristiano Ronaldo.
Only direct football worked for Uruguay, that of crashes, that of mud. With the possession he was disoriented. The same in pressing without the ball. That was taken advantage of by South Korea, which for long moments exposed the sky-blue team. The Asian team played without complexes, with a group of players ready to give their all in every game. They give off emotion.
Perhaps Korea’s mistake in its approach was not starting Kang In Lee. The footballer of MajorcaBefore Valencia, he has a talent for moving the ball quickly. Son, masked and stellar in his country, was very alone when looking for solutions above. The team led by the Portuguese paulo bento He has behind a center back with many guarantees, Kim Min-jae.
Waiting for what Portugal will do against Ghana, what was seen in the Ciudad de la Educación stadium was a jug of cold water for the Uruguayans. The overwhelming illusion with which they reached the World Cup, after the miraculous reaction with Diego Alonso to qualify for the tournament, is turned off with a gray match. The good thing is that there is a team to solve this in time.
Uruguay is also waiting for Ronald Araújo, who didn’t even enter the squad. The Barça centre-back is still not ready to compete and it is unknown if he will be able to play against Portugal. It will be almost a final, so he won’t want to miss it.
