The biggest setbacks in World Cup history

Uruguay plays in Group H of the World Cup in Qatar against South Korea.

La Celeste, two-time winner of the tournament, is seen as a dark horse this year, with Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez in fine form, while veteran forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani look for one last hurrah.

Federico Valverde is arguably more important than anyone else, and the Real Madrid midfielder will be key to setting the pace against South Korea. Son Heung-min will be hoping to play despite suffering a facial fracture ahead of the tournament as he plays for Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League, meaning he will wear a face mask – at least during the group stage.

Both sides will be confident that they can not only qualify, but also finish on top in a wide open group that also includes Ghana and Portugal.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

6 min: There’s been a lot of talk about Uruguay’s midfield three of Bentancur, Vecino and Valvarde, but South Korea currently dominates the center of the field. Darwin Nunez, meanwhile, has started on the left.

Uruguay 0-0 South Korea

3 min: You can tell when Son is touching the ball without looking at the screen, given the audible screaming that echoes through the stadium every time he touches the ball.

South Korea looks confident. This bright red kit also looks brilliant.

Uruguay vs South Korea

Hopefully this is a cracker. Son meets Diego Godin for the handshake. The veteran defender is back at his fourth World Cup, at the age of 36.

Luis Suarez could also make history with a goal today and tie the record for Uruguay if he scores his eighth of the World Cup.

The teams are out and it’s time for the anthems! Uruguay is so, so good. A wonderfully musical intro and then a very powerful finish. Sublime. Fiery.

Son Heung-min is out, face mask and all, and has his hand on his heart. Delicious things.

Son Heung-min: South Korea’s biggest football export still leading despite injury concerns

Son Heung-min’s goal drought at the start of the season has raised questions about the pre-World Cup form of South Korean striker Tottenham Hotspur, who is fit and shooting after a broken face.

South Korea’s attacking talisman Son has undergone surgery to stabilize a fracture around his left eye he suffered while playing for Tottenham Hotspur against Olympique de Marseille, which has cast doubt on his World Cup participation.

But for months it was his finish that worried fans.

After finishing joint Premier League top goalscorer last season, the 30-year-old went eight games in all competitions without a goal, worrying his golden touch was failing him and time was ticking down to kick-off in Qatar.
