Uruguay 0-0 South Korea LIVE! World Cup 2022 match stream, latest score and goal updates today

The World Cup matches continue as Group H kicks off in Al Rayyan this afternoon. Uruguay and South Korea at the Education City Stadium, two-time title winners who are expected to make deep runs with a well-balanced squad full of talent including the likes of Darwin Nunez and Federico Valverde as well as aging heads such as Luis Suarez, who starts the day with Manchester United’s Facundo Pellestri.

South Korea will be relieved that captain and student Heung-min Son is fit to play from outside the tournament this tournament after requiring surgery on a facial fracture he suffered in the Champions League with Tottenham. He will wear a protective mask as Paulo Bento’s side aim for a positive start in what is a very difficult group on paper.
