Uruguay flatter to deceive in World Cup stalemate with South Korea

If this Uruguay 2.0 are to scale the heights of the heroes of old then they will have to find a performance far more worthy of them after opening their World Cup with a hugely disappointing goalless stalemate with South Korea.

Diego Alonso’s new La Celeste have tantalised many in the build-up to this tournament with their blend of wise old heads and virulent new blood combining to great effect over the last 12 months, but neither element could make the key contribution here as a resolute Korea more than earned a point to start their own journey in Qatar on a positive note.

Uruguay vs South Korea player ratings as Valverde impresses

Uruguay vs South Korea player ratings

Valverde – 8: Great run deep, touch and strike at goal. A rocket in the 90th minute that rattled the woodwork and a warrior out of possession, putting his body on the line.

Nunez – 6: Missed a chance lunging as ball came across goal. Brilliant industry to work back and counter and then surged clear in second half to set up a big chance.

Son – 7: Brilliant feet to sit Caceres down, was on the periphery of the game for long spells, but made a stunning long ball in behind to try catch Uruguay out after sitting in a low block. Almost found the bottom corner with a crisp strike that curled wide.

See the rest, here:

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea: The Real Madrid midfielder rattled the woodwork late on as both sides cancelled each other out

FULL TIME: Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

That will be the story of the game, Uruguay going close but just not doing enough to earn the win. Both Godin and Valverde struck the woodwork but Uruguay were disappointing overall and did not create enough chances against a stubborn and organised South Korean team.

South Korea were probably the better team in the first half but could not take their chances. Son Heung-min was quiet, though, and they were very passive in the second half.

FULL TIME: Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

And that is that.

We have our fourth 0-0 of the World Cup – and for a match where we had so much hope!

But Valverde came this close to snatching the win at the end.
