Uruguay, South Korea go toe to toe in entertaining stalemate

Doha, Nov 24 (EFE).- Uruguay and South Korea were evenly matched in an entertaining 0-0 draw in their Group H match on Thursday at the Education City Stadium in Doha.

Uruguay went closest through Ernesto Valverde, who smashed a long range strike against the upright as the game wound down.

South Korea’s star Son Heung-min, who hadn’t played since sustaining a facial injury for Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month, could not inspire his side against a tough, experienced Uruguay team featuring the likes of Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Liverpool’s new forward Darwin Nuñez.

While neither team managed to break the deadlock, it wasn’t for lack of trying or creativity, with both teams contributing to an open, attacking match although South Korea, who had the better of the first half, looked less threatening in attack than the South Americans.

The draw leaves the group delicately poised, with Portugal due to take on Ghana later on Thursday. EFE
