Uruguay vs South Korea LIVE World Cup 2022: Son Heung-min and Darwin Nunez kick off with latest score, goals and updates from Qatar

The greatest unrest in the history of the World Cup

Uruguay will play South Korea in Group H of the World Cup in Qatar.

Two-time tournament winners La Celeste are seen as dark horses this year, with Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez in great form, while seasoned strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will be looking for the last hurray.

Federico Valverde could be more important than anyone else, and the Real Madrid midfielder will be key to dictating the pace of the game against South Korea. Son Heung-min is hoping to play despite breaking his face in preparation for the tournament while playing for Tottenham 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 first in a wide-open group that also includes Ghana and Portugal.

I hope it’s a cracker. The son meets Diego Godin for a handshake. The veteran defender returned for his fourth World Cup at the age of 36.

Luis Suarez could also make history by scoring today and equal Uruguay’s record if he scores his eighth World Cup goal.

The teams are out, it’s time for the anthems! Uruguay is so, so good. A wonderful musical intro followed by a powerful, powerful finish. Sublime. Fiery.

Son Heung-min came out, with his face mask and everything, and he has his hand over his heart. Beautiful things.

Son Heung-min: South Korea’s biggest soccer export continues to excel despite injury concerns

Son Heung-min’s goal drought at the start of the season has raised questions about South Korean striker Tottenham Hotspur’s form ahead of the World Cup, who is fit and scoring after suffering a facial fracture.

South Korea’s attacking talisman son has undergone surgery to stabilize a fracture around his left eye sustained while playing for Tottenham against Olympique de Marseille, leading to doubts over his World Cup participation.

However, for many months it was his finishing that worried fans.

After becoming the Premier League’s top scorer last season, the 30-year-old went eight matches across all competitions without a goal, raising fears that his golden touch was leaving him with time running out to start in Qatar.

Uruguayan excellent World Cup black horses with Federico Valverde at the heart of their recovery

“The original World Cup winners and even hosts, Uruguay, have been part of international folklore for as long as this version of the game has been around.

“Unlike some others in this part of the world, however, La Celeste’s story has not always been one of romance and achievement, of being giants and being admired, their names woven into the World Cup fabric as often as they would like.

“South America’s tenth largest nation by population has gone from mythical to lost on the world stage in less than three decades.

“Between 1978 and 1998, they only qualified twice and tasted victory only once. It’s been a long road back for the Sky Blue team, but the legendary Oscar Tabarez has overseen and developed a golden generation of players and now, under the guidance of Diego Alonso, they are showing that a generational team doesn’t have to be limited to one generation.

“Uruguay are a force to be reckoned with in Qatar at the World Cup, a team with players who know their role, proven scorers and committed faces, and most importantly, a handful of elite talent playing at the top of their game.”

Breel Embolo gives Switzerland a great World Cup start to punish lavish Cameroon

Subdued goal celebrations are not a particularly common sight in international football, but with an increasingly globalized world comes an increasingly globalized World Cup, as well as the conflicting emotions of Breel Embolo, the winner of the match from Switzerland.

Born in Yaoundé before immigrating to France at the age of five, Embolo did not celebrate the sharp, led finish that helped defeat Cameroon in that tight Group G opener, instead throwing up his hands in apology. Instead, several of his teammates ran to celebrate an assist with Xherdan Shaqiri.

They finally understand. Many of Murat Yakin’s squad are dual nationals, and the contingent of Balkan descent revel in revenge for their fiery encounter with Serbia in 2018 in the final round of group games. This could be crucial to their hopes of reaching the round of 16 with Brazil now next, but getting three points here was a promising start.

Switzerland should emulate Arsenal to unlock Granit Xhaka after Cameroon’s hard-fought win

“In a way, the World Cup in Switzerland started off perfectly with a 1-0 win over Cameroon. In their second game against Brazil, the Swiss have three points under their belt and don’t need a shock victory over their pre-tournament favorites to keep their knockout hopes alive.

“However, it was a tough win, with Cameroon the better side in the first half and an unlucky lack of a lead before half-time before their European opponents scored through Cameroonian-born Breel Embolo early in the second period and then choked life out of the game.

“No one could reasonably argue that the Swiss attack was firing on all cylinders, but the answer to unlocking their potential is already within their ranks and is named Granit Xhaka. The captain won his 107th match and has been a key cog since his debut in 2011, as evidenced by playing every minute of their recent Nations League campaign, but it’s time to change his role in the team to make them real contenders. “

FULL-TIME! Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

But that counts for nothing! Switzerland is doing enough to beat Cameroon and open Group G with a confident victory. Breel Embolo is the match-winner, scoring against his home country shortly after half-time and not celebrating out of respect. After an animated first half, Switzerland were able to win with little confusion. They will be full of confidence ahead of their second group match against Brazil, which will later face Serbia.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

90+5 mins: Block! Cameroon, just hold on! It looked like Seferovic had hit the target after Cameroon’s foul. He chipped in and had the goal open, but Castelletto rushed in for a shot.
