From Doha

The Uruguayan team was the third south american to debut in the World Cup, and was unable to unleash his full potential against an orderly opponent like South Korea.

The position of the Uruguayans was to get ahead on the field of play to move the development towards the rival field, with the control of the ball that they can offer both Valverde as Bentancur.

The two of them are the ones who lead the attack circuit, and are in charge of supplying Suarez or Darwin Nunez. The chances of converting were few for Alonso’s team, and the clearest was a header from Godín that hit the base of the post.

The problem that Uruguay had was that it could not connect the final pass so that a player could face the Korean goalkeeper. The Asians, precisely, did not get upset at any time, and they continued with their scheme even though they couldn’t keep the ball. However, as the minutes went by, they established themselves on the ground and began to arrive. with risk towards Rochet.

Korea’s game turned to the right, and when they combined Kim and Sang-Ho they managed to overflow to the bottom and then look for to the partner who came through the center, which was usually Hwang. With that position they had a great opportunity to convert, but the definition went over the arc.

Uruguay tried to advance with the ball close to the ground, while the Koreans were faster in attack: they threw long passes crosswise to surprise the defenders, and in a few seconds they were close to the rival area.

The external climate cheered him up better the fans of Korea, who with drums caused more noise than the Uruguayans, who from time to time reacted with some typical chant such as “… let’s go the Celeste, we have to win this afternoon.”

The duel had a little variation in the second half, as Korea exhibited more audacity to go forward, and he took better care of the ball. On this occasion, he played it with precision to overcome the Uruguayan marks and be able to uneven

The stadium explosion occurred when Cavani entered instead of Suárez. The latter did not contribute much to the team, because he did not receive the ball frequently and that prevented him from having a goal situation. In addition, his physical condition does not allow him to participate in a full match.

Cavani, who would have any chance of play in Boca next year, he moved across the entire attack front, and was difficult for the Korean defenders to catch.

Fatigue took hold of some of the Uruguayan players, and the coach also brought in Vineyard and De La Cruz. The River player was located behind the forwards to be the link with them. With his contribution, Núñez was able to finish off from the right and the ball went close to the post.

The final minute was electrifying, with a shot from Valverde that crashed on the stick, and Son’s response where the ball grazed the Rochet’s pole.

Uruguay could not display its best game, against a team that made no mistakes and showed that can dispute a place in the standings towards the round of 16.
