Nov 24, 2022 | Sports | 0 comments

Uruguay and South Korea met for the third time in FIFA World Cup action, but the South Americans were unable to make it a treble.

A potential Premier League battle will headline Uruguay and South Korea’s Group H opener, as Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez goes up against Son Hueng-min of Tottenham and South Korea.

Both these sides will fancy their chances of starting strong and launching a knockout-stage bid at the Education City Stadium, as they seek to steal the limelight from Portugal, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are bound to draw much of the group attention.

This match will represent the third time that these two teams will have met in FIFA World Cup action, with the South Americans aiming to make it a treble, having won both previous encounters (1-0 in 1990 and 2-1 in 2010).
