Hwang In-Beom makes sure I'm paying attention with an ambitious strike from long range which didn't go far over but was never going in. A bit of a lull in play in the last few minutes. Very little to report. HUGE chance for South Korea! Kim Moon-hwan drills a low cross into the middle of the box and finds Hwang Ui-jo all alone in front of goal. He's got so much time and space but whacks it over the bar first time.
Love you, SonThis is how much South Korea loves Son Heung-min. Uruguay have been massively on the back foot so far. Núñez tries to get them up the field with a direct run down the wing but the ball's back in the Uruguayan half soon after.... which leads to nothing. Na Sang-ho really got the South Korean fans off their seats there with a break into the box from the right flank, nutmeg on Oliveira included.

Uruguay vs South Korea summary: Uruguay hit the post twice, score, goals, highlights 0-0 | Qatar World Cup 2022Uruguay vs South Korea: Qatar 2022 World Cup Group H live! Full-time: Uruguay 0-0 South KoreaAbsolutely nothing to separate the teams and you get the feeling that if they'd played until next week they might not have scored. South Korea just about had the better of the first half and were more controlled in possession throughout the game, with Hwang Ui-jo missing the clearest chance created in open play. Uruguay, who relied more on direct play and counterattacks, weren't especially impressive in the first 45 minutes but carried slightly more of a threat in the final third, with Diego Godín heading their best chance off the post.

A couple of no-nonsense tackles in quick succession on the edge of the box from the Uruguayan defence which is, of course, exactly what you'd expect from them. Pellistri looked as if he was about to break into the box on the right but Kim Jin-su nipped in ahead of him really quickly to put out the fire. We're back underway again! Let's have a few goals, chicos and... how do you say 'lads' in South Korean? Giménez long ballsJosé Giménez's long diagonal passes from central defence have been a feature of Uruguay's play in the second half.
Does he push Kim Jin-su in the back as a corner comes into the box? No, according to referee Turpin. Seconds later, the Spurs midfielder then pulls off a beautiful roulette to work his way out of trouble. Manager Diego Alonso would've killed him if he'd lost if there though. Crucial last-ditch tackle from Giménez! South Korea piece together a lovely move and Son Heung-min thinks he's worked his way into a shooting position in the box but Giménez sticks out a leg to nick the ball away from him at the vital moment.

He'll try and run it off though. Cavani on, Suárez offSuárez is indeed the man who is replaced. Cavani isn't a bad replacement... Godín sets Núñez away down the left and the attacker breezes past Kim Min-jae, who slips, and into the box. His cutback is blocked by goalkeeper Kim Seng-gyu at the near post, with only Suárez in the box. Cavani timeEdinson Cavani is stripped and ready for action. It'll surely be Suárez going off, he's barely had a kick.

Cáceres make a hugely important headed clearance there a few yards from his own goal as a cross comes into the box from the right looking for Kim Jin-su. The left-back isn't shy, he's been in the box plenty so far. Cáceres goes in the book for a challenge on Son Heung-min, who needs a bit of treatment but is OK to continue. Phew (says all of South Korea). Bentancur again at the heart of the action! The ball sits up nicely for him on the edge of the box and he gets a good connection on it but Kim Min-jae makes an important block. Bentancur in the thick of things.

Promising signs for South Korea. There's been a definite change in the pattern of the game in the last five minutes or so. Uruguay have come right back into this. Another chance for Uruguay! Another raking ball from Giménez, this time for Pellistri, who heads across goal. Núñez can't connect and Suárez makes a total mess of it after Oliveria sends it back across goal. Fede Valverde is the man of the moment in LaLiga and he always broke the deadlock! Giménez played a superb ball over the top of the South Korea defence, Valverde's control and lob was deflected just over.
Credit must go to South Korea for a fine defensive performance but Luis Suárez in particular looked off the pace in that first half. Will Edinson Cavani start ahead of him in Uruguay's next game against Portugal on Monday? Diego Godín: player of the matchOur friends over at SofaScore have named Uruguay defender Diego Godín as their player of the match. Happy with that? If not, who was yours? That's controversial.
South Korea didn't offer much of a threat other than a couple of efforts from the edge of the box that were dragged wide. At the end of the 90 minutes, neither goalkeeper had a save to make. That tells the whole story. Record breakers: part 2Just to finish on a high... As D:Ream once said - things can only get better.

When you're covering a game, it probably feels better than it actually is. I feel as if this might have been one of these games... Uruguay's attacking strugglesI don't think it'd be too controversial to say that none of these three were in the reckoning for player of the match.
Another corner... Darwin Núñez has very much started on the left side of the Uruguay attack. Luis Suárez through the middle, as expected. South Korea looking very tidy on the ball in midfield in the early stages. Uruguay struggling to get out of their half. An energetic start from both sides. An early corner for South Korea, Son Heung-min's delivery is eventually gathered by Rochet. National anthems: South KoreaA nice strings number from South Korea. I feel as if there have been a lot of trumpets so far. Definitely less noisy but still good numbers of South Koreans in attendance, by the looks of it. National anthems: UruguayUruguay anthem up first.
Valverde feeds a nice ball into the striker's feet, he takes a great touch and unleashes a shot which is well blocked by the South Korean defence. Jung Woo-young heads a ball out for a throw and it smacks off Uruguay coach Diego Alonso's face. He tried to play it cool but there were a few hairs out of a place at the end of it. Kim Min-jae, who slipped in that incident with Núñez, is hobbling a bit, it looked as if he went over on his ankle.
Leaning back, that's how not to do it, kids. Another cross from Kim Jin-su, who's getting some joy down the left. Bentancur gets it away from inside the six yard box. Space and time for Kim Jin-su to whip a cross into the box. He's looking for Na Sang-ho at the far past but it's just too high and it drifts out for a throw. What a waste! Uruguay break at speed through Oliviera, he's got Núñez ahead of him to his left and just needs to play a simple pass to set the striker up for a shot on goal. But Oliviera's pass is far too heavy and Kim Seng-gyu intercepts. A first glimpse of what Son Heung-min can do! He latches onto a long ball, bamboozles Cáceres and Valverde and fires a dangerous ball into the box which is blocked out for a throw-in.
Referee Turpin thinks that's a goal kick though. It wasn't. Left-back Kim Jin-su gets away down the left and slings in a cross which swings just behind the goal line before Rochet palms it over. Uruguay are going to have to track the runners here. Excellent pressing from Jung Woo-young just when it looked as if Pellistri was going to build-up a head of steam. South Korea haven't given Uruguay a second's peace so far. Out of nowhere, Uruguay almost create the first chance of the game. Oliveira clips the ball into the box into the run of Vecino, who gets a poor contact on it and doesn't seriously trouble Kim Seng-gyu.
Varela nicks the ball onto Nuñez, who was racing into the box, but is adjudged to have fouled Kim Jin-su in the process. Even more bizarrely, South Korea coach Paulo Bento gets shown a yellow card even though the free-kick went in favour of his side. Negative. De La Cruz's corner plucked out of the air by Kim Seng-gyu. A corner for Uruguay! Could this be it...?? Seven minutes to be added in total, by the way.
Yellow. Bentancur curls cross in and Cavani gets on the end of it but his header sails harmlessly wide. Sorry folks, but I just can't see where a goal is going to come from. Uruguay having most of the ball but going nowhere. Uruguayan are just lacking that bit of quality on the ball. Núñez has the chance to work the ball through to Bentancur in the box but overhits it and it goes out for a goal kick. The midfielder was in a great position there. That's the closest we've come in the second half. Cavani works it out to Núñez on the left-hand side of the area, he cuts inside and shoots wide, although Cavani almost got a vital touch on it in the box.
