Uruguay open their participation in the 2022 World Cup on Thursday with a thrilling clash against Heung-min Son and South Korea. The two sides are joined in Group H by Portugal and Ghana, with the Uruguayans considered favorites to advance alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and company. But South Korea are a side to watch two decades after their semi-finals, when Napoli centre-back Min-Jae Kim emerged, a star in his debut season in Italy and missing the 2018 edition of the trophy due to injury.

storylines

Uruguay: While there are still the old, familiar faces like 36-year-old Diego Godin, 35-year-old Martin Caceres, 35-year-old Luis Suarez and 35-year-old Edinson Cavani, this national team is in a new trending direction. Real Madrid’s Fede Valverde is one of the best players in the world, Darwin Nunez is an up-and-coming striker looking to establish himself on the international stage and young talents like Facundo Torres and Facundo Pellistri are stars in the making. But what to look for is central defensive middle, a position Uruguayans take pride in. Sporting Lisbon rising star Manuel Ugarte is expected to fill the position with his incredible tackle ability and well-controlled aggression. If he can be the cog in the middle to protect an aging defense, this team can go very, very far.

South Korea: All eyes will be on Son’s health after the Tottenham star suffered a fracture around his left eye earlier this month. He’s in the squad and expected to play and that’s huge for a player who has the weight of the nation on his shoulders. South Korea’s ability to create chances means they have a good chance of taking something from this game, especially against an aggressive Uruguay defence. With him, they’re knockout phase material. Without him, they’re probably in the group stage and done.

forecast

Nunez comes off the bench and delivers with a touch with a well-placed goal in the penalty area, giving Uruguay all three points. Choose: Uruguay 2, South Korea 1
