Major storylines, players to watch closely
Uruguay have reached the knockout stages of each of their last three tournaments but were knocked out by eventual champions France in the quarter-finals in 2018. Can Suarez, Godin and Cavani all make a mammoth effort to drive Uruguay again? to the final stages? The likes of Rodrigo Bentancur, Federico Valverde and Darwin Nunez are the new generation to take center stage for years to come. With Portugal and Ghana (who are desperate for 2010 revenge) also in their group, Uruguay see three points against South Korea as necessary.

For South Korea, it’s all about whether Heung-min Son is fit enough to play a big role at this World Cup. They know that Portugal and Uruguay are preferred to get out of their group, but if this Korean side can stay solid defensively (Napoli’s Kim Min-jae is the leader in defense and is having a great season), they know that Son ( when fully fit) can win a game in a split second. That’s the hope they hold onto as they seek to exit the group for the first time since 2010.
