Uruguay and South Korea played out a scrappy goalless draw to share the points in this Group H World Cup 2022 match at Education City Stadium.

La Celeste had the best chances early on, with Federico Valverde controlling well and volleying just over after Jose Gimenezs delightful long ball. While a desperate situation for South Korea on a counter-attack saw Mathias Olivera overhit the ball with Darwin Nunez in on goal.

But Uruguay should have been behind moments later when an unmarked Hwang Ui-Jo leaned back and blazed over from 10 yards out. Verteran centre-back Diego Godin was then agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock, outjumping Lee Jae-Sung and driving a powerful header against the post with Kim Seung-Gyu well beaten.

Nunez raced clear after Kim Min-Jaes slip but Kim Seung-Gyu was able to narrowly intercept his cut-back as Uruguay flooded the box in hope of a tap-in. Valverde rattled the post with a fine strike late on and Son Heung-min, wearing a mask to protect his fractured face, saw a shot zip wide of the post after Sergio Rochets poor pass. But it was not to be enough with both sides forced to settle for a point in what promises to be a tight group fought to the end.
