Uruguay and South Korea they tied in a game without much history (0-0). With practically no chances and with a very flat game, the veteran South American team failed to find its best version against an Asian team that was very orderly on the pitch, but without much bite in attack. A tie that is worth both teams to start the World Cup by addingseeking to improve their results against Ghana and Brazil.

The match had raised many expectations, where one of the great ‘veterans’ faced a team that started with the condition of ‘covered’, with Heung Min Son (Tottenham) and Kim Min Jae (Naples) as the main attacking claims. Nevertheless, the meeting was extremely disappointing: Not only was it not showy or attractive, but the occasions were conspicuous by their absence and the clash faded as the minutes passed.

In the first 45 minutes, equality was the keynote of the match. Neither Uruguay nor South Korea were able to make the difference in a first half in which neither of the two teams made enough merits to get ahead on the scoreboard. And that both teams enjoyed a couple of clear opportunities, although it is true that more for the demerit of both defenses than for the attacking success of two teams that did not show much gunpowder.

During the early stages, the proposal was clear: Uruguay constantly sent long balls in the direction of Luis Suarez Y Darwin Nunezwhile Corea tried to beat lines by touching and touching, but without much depth. The match was like a game of chesswhere each of the national teams sought to hurt their rival, but without neglecting their rear, a fairly common trend in the first game of each group.

However, the first to send a notice to mariners was Korea. It happened in the 35th minute, when a good play by a streak of kimmon ended with a ball to the heart of the area, where Hwang Jo did not hit the target rochet and sent it over the crossbar. Just a few minutes later, at 43′, she was Diego Godin the one who had it for Uruguay, by sending a corner kick thrown by Fede Valverde. Little more in a first part with little history.

A second part to forget

Despite the fact that the first few minutes had left a lot to be desired, the feeling that the best chances had come in the final stretch of the game presaged that the best would come in the second half… but Nothing is further from reality. The dynamics were the same as at the beginning of the game, where only distant attempts were seen and without much precision. A shot that missed Darwin Núñez’s goal in the 80th minute It was the most dangerous… until the last minute.

It was in the nineties when both teams were able to uneven the score. The clearest was Fede Valverde, who crashed a lash from 30 meters in the Korean squad; the response was immediate and Son launched a missile from the front that skimmed Rochet’s stick. The match will not be remembered in the history of the World Cups and the best news for both teams is the draw that keeps them alive for the next Group H matches.
