Uruguay and South Korea kickoff Group H proceedings at the 2022 World Cup on Thursday, November 24.
The South Americans will be favourites and won four of their five games at the 2018 tournament in Russia, only knocked out by eventual champions France.
South Korea didn’t manage to escape their group four years ago but did beat Germany 2-0 which denied the defending champions a place in the knockout stages.
Uruguay will be cautious of a potent South Korean side but have conceded just twice from their nine previous games this year.
