Uruguay take on the visitors South Korea in the round 1 match of group stage of FIFA World Cup 2022. The match will be played on Thursday, November 24th at Education City Stadium (Al Rayyan).
Uruguay goes to the World Cup without Oscar Washington Tabares. The "Charrua" for a decade and a half, since 2006, has consistently played under the guidance of the same mentor. And successfully: with the "Master" the team won the Copa America and reached the semi-finals of the World Cup. But still, cooperation has exhausted itself, and last year the Uruguayans first stopped at the Copa America already in the 1st round of the playoffs, and then, due to a series of defeats, they found themselves on the verge of failure in qualifying. As a result, in December, Diego Alonso, a football player in the recent past, became the new mentor. With him, Uruguay managed to win all the remaining qualifying matches and finish the qualification in 3rd place. But let's see how the team will play directly in the tournament.

South Korea wants to confirm the status of the most successful team in Asia. The "Warriors of Daeju" since 1986 invariably play in mundials. And in 2002, they managed to become the semi-finalists of the tournament. True, then the World Cup was played on the fields of just this country and Japan. And there were at least a few episodes when the referees were already very loyal. On the other hand, only in 2010 did the Koreans manage to at least leave the group. So in Russia they won only once with a couple of defeats, and went home - now, of course, they want to achieve more. Moreover, the quartet does not look particularly difficult, and the Asian coaching staff has strong players at their disposal, among which, traditionally, Song Hong Min stands out, who has a very worthy season at Tottenham.
Teams played head-to-heads quite often. And all 6 first meetings, including the 1990 and 2010 World Championships, were won by Uruguay. And only in a friendly match in 2018, the victory was for Korea. Uruguay will enter the field as the favorite of this pair. But the Koreans are ready to argue with this that they will not capitulate so easily. So we are waiting for "over 2 goals scored".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
