The World Cup's tally of lacklustre 0-0 stalemates continued in Group G as Uruguay and South Korea played out a goalless affair at the Education City Stadium on Thursday.

Both sides were forced to settle for a share of the spoils after Diego Godin and Federico Valverde each struck the woodwork for Diego Alonso's side, afterHwang Ui-jo squandered a glorious chance to take the lead for South Korea.

Sportsmail has rated both teams' players following the drab affair in Al Rayyan.

Uruguay

Sergio Rochet 6

Solid when called upon. His error late on could have been punished if Son Heung-min had his shooting boots on.

Martin Caceres 6

Reliable performance from the 35-year-old veteran, who dealt with South Korea well despite the yellow card. Offered little going forward.

Jose Gimenez 9

Best player on the pitch with dominance in the air and leadership at the back. Peppered South Korea with threatening diagonal passes in the first-half.

Diego Godin 8

Unlucky to see his header crash the post. Dealt with South Korea's long ball strategy well despite his ageing legs.
