Uruguay vs South Korea live stream: how to watch the 2022 FIFA World Cup in 4K HDR today, team news

Updated: 2 days, 6 hours, 11 minutes, 18 seconds ago

Nobody does World Cups quite like Uruguay, expert exponents of the good, the bad, and the downright scandalous facets of the game. They've brought Luis Suarez to the party for one last hurrah, and kick off their tournament today against South Korea, whose hopes largely hinge on the considerable abilities of Son Heung-min. It's a burning hot afternoon in Al Rayyan. Make sure you know how to watch a Uruguay vs South Korea live stream from anywhere (opens in new tab) and all games from the FIFA World Cup 2022 online for free.

Suarez and Darwin Nunez both start up front for Uruguay, who opt for a 4-4-2, which means Edinson Cavani will have to make an impact from the bench. La Celeste's veteran No.1 Fernando Muslera has been left out in favour of Nacional's Sergio Rochet, and Fede Valverde and Rodrigo Bentancur form the axis of the team in central midfield.

The big news for South Korea is that Son has been passed fit to start. He's part of a three-pronged forward line, alongside Na Sang-ho and Hwang Ui-jo. The Taegeuk Warriors line up in a 4-3-3 formation, with Lee Jae-sung acting as the link between defence and attack.

Not seeing Oscar Tabarez prowling La Celeste's technical area is going to take some getting used to. The Uruguay legend was dismissed when the team's qualification campaign went off the rails, and the subsequent appointment of Diego Alonso has had the desired effect. By marrying the best of the old guard with the most promising new kids on the block, he's built a team rich in experience, nous, energy and, above all, quality.

Nunez, Valverde and Jose Gimenez are the new spine of the team, but the more experienced heads are still there to pass on their wisdom – and their flair for crossing the line without due punishment. Napoli's Kim Min-jae has emerged as one of the most impressive central defenders in Europe this season, but his attentions are going to be required left, right and center with the attacking talents at Uruguay's disposal.

South Korea pulled off one of the most memorable results of the last World Cup when they beat then-defending champions Germany 2-0 in their last group game. But two defeats in their first two matches meant they were already eliminated by then, and Paulo Bento knows that a repeat will be unacceptable. Key to his team's chances will be Son, who suffered a fracture around his left eye earlier this month. What sort of shape is their main man in?

This Group H match kicks off at 1pm GMT / 8am ET today at the 40,000-seater Education City Stadium at Qatar 2022. Make sure you know how to watch a Uruguay vs South Korea live stream and see all of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
