Uruguay twice defeated the South Korean team in their three matches in Group H of the World Cup, preventing them from registering a third win.
In the World Cup fourth of his career, veteran defender Diego Godin thumped a thunderous header against the base of the post from a corner just before half-time, also finding Valverde Federico from a late strike.
In the 34th minute, Hwang Ui-jo blasted above the goal from a short distance, additionally wasting a magnificent chance for South Korea in their 10th successive tournament participation.
Neither side could muster a single shot on target in the World Cup record, as Darwin Nunez’s and Son Heung-min’s wide efforts also curled wide, sporting a protective facial mask after undergoing surgery at Tottenham.
In the year 2018, there was merely a single match that ended without any goals in a total of 64 matches. However, in this particular World Cup, it resulted in a fourth match without any goals out of 14 matches.
Uruguay will be facing Portugal, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, on Monday, November 28th, while South Korea will be competing against Ghana on the same day.

Uruguay and South Korea drew 0-0 in a full-time match.
In Group H, Ghana and Portugal are on the opposite sides, and it is not the worst result in the world to have a point on the scoreboard. Both teams have earned a point.
Hmm…. And I’ve encompassed all of them. Following just one out of 64 matches at the previous tournament, this marks the fourth match without any goals at this World Cup.
The entrance we are going for still has both sides knocking, but it’s desperate and lacking in quality.
During the initial period, I was concerned that the referees had misplaced their timepieces. That’s a better outcome. SEVEN minutes of extra time and we will reach the 91st minute.
In the 90th minute, Son goes close at the other end but his poor clearance is pounced on by Rochet, the star Spurs player, who cracks a wide effort with his left foot!
See it if you’re in Canada.
SON WITH A BRILLIANT CHANCE! The final minutes have been wild and Korea Republic came so close to taking the lead.#FIFAWorldCup pic.twitter.com/oKJiwoksG0
Unfortunate for the player from Real Madrid. Strikes off Kim Seung-gyu’s right post, Federico Valverde unleashes a powerful shot from afar that strikes the post once more! Uruguay strikes the post again at the 89th minute.
Watch if you’re in the United States:

In the 88th minute, Uruguay makes their final substitution by bringing in Guillermo Varela for Facundo Pellistri.
However, does either team possess the determination or innovation to discover a last-minute victor? The South Korean percussionists among the spectators are producing rhythmic beats to boost their team’s morale. In the 83rd minute,
In the 81st minute, Edinson Cavani signs as a physical presence, bustling his way past a couple of defenders before finding Darwin Nunez, whose curling effort is just wide of the post.
In the 78th minute, Uruguay also introduce substitutes, Nicolas De La Cruz and Matias Vina, who replace Matias Vecino and Mathias Olivera.
In the 77th minute, Sung Gue-Cho, as a substitute, attempts a great shot. He instinctively hits the ball with his left foot, causing it to drift wide of the goal and land just outside the penalty area.
Cho Gue-sung, Son Jun-ho, and Lee Kang-in are substituted for Hwang Ui-jo, Na Sang-ho, and Yoon Jong-gyu in the 74th minute for South Korea.
In the 71st minute, Son sets off in pursuit of the forward ball, quickly heading it away from Rochet, the goalkeeper of Uruguay.
In the 69th minute, Uruguay is dominating possession. South Korea is confined to their own half, but maintaining their discipline.
In the 65th minute, Edinson Cavani replaces Suarez. The starting veteran had little influence. Can Cavani make a difference?

In the 63rd minute, Young-gwon Kim receives the final ball and successfully retrieves it. He manages to touch it multiple times, but Min-jae Kim intercepts him. Nunez Darwin finds Godin Diego with a remarkable long pass from which he skillfully skins Godin Diego.
In the 60th minute, Uruguay is getting ready to bring Edinson Cavani into the match. It is probable that his fellow player Luis Suarez, who is also 35 years old, will be replaced.
While we wait for play to resume at the 56th minute, take a look at this magnificent display of talent from Rodrigo Bentancur if you’re in the United Kingdom.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Five-star skill moves here 😍 Rodrigo Bentancur with a Maradona 🔥👏#BBCWorldCup #BBCFootball
In exchange for his efforts, the Uruguayan defender receives a cautionary card. Son is currently receiving medical attention after enduring a painful blow to his heel from Martin Caceres during the 55th minute.
In the 51st minute, Heung-min Son creates space for himself in the penalty area of Uruguay, preventing Maria Jose Gimenez from blocking his brilliant shot, but Sergio Rochet clears it away with a flicked corner kick.
The cunning attacker likely requires that additional half a second to outmaneuver the opposing defenders, but the experienced striker is ruled offside as Luis Suarez pursues a long pass over the defense for Uruguay at the 48th minute. Currently at the age of 35.
46th minute: No alterations for either team as the second half begins.
▶️ The action continues…#FIFAWorldCup | #Qatar2022
AT THE HALFWAY POINT: Uruguay and South Korea are tied 0-0.
45th minute: BREAKING NEWS: There will only be one additional minute of play! This sets a new record for the World Cup.
In the 43rd minute, Uruguay’s closest goal came from a powerful header by Diego Godin, the veteran defender. He thumps the ball into the bottom left corner of the post from a corner kick. Woo-young Jung does a great job of getting ahead of Luis Suarez to receive a dangerous cross from Facundo Pellistri.

In the 39th minute, In-Beom Hwang tries a shot from a distance for South Korea, but he fails to keep it close to the ground. Promising from that moment onward.
Hwang Ui-jo should have netted the goal! He slices it over the bar when the cross is delivered from the right, but excellent performance from Kim Moon-hwan creates a huge opportunity for South Korea in the 34th minute.
Watch if you’re in the United States:
What a chance for South Korea! The build up was a thing of beauty but the finish isn’t there as things remain scoreless 🔒 pic.twitter.com/Y84voIJRx5
In the 27th minute, Uruguay’s Olivera Mathias makes a deep pass to Nunez Darwin, but unfortunately, he overhits it and the ball goes completely outside with his left foot, into South Korea’s territory.
In the 25th minute, Olivera Mathias makes a beautiful effort to curl the ball, but Caceres Martin cuts inside and shows off his impressive footwork.
Despite Uruguay’s threatening play, the Liverpool striker is unable to make contact with the ball. Darwin Nunez comes close to reaching it, but a first-time cross from Gimenez to Facundo Pellistri on the right wing at the 21st minute proves to be another excellent pass.
Keep an eye on it if you’re in the United Kingdom:
Ooof nearly from Nunez! 😬 So close to getting onto the end of this ball across to give Uruguay the lead…#BBCWorldCup #BBCFootball
In the 19th minute, Federico Valverde creates a chance for himself by brilliantly controlling a long pass from Maria Jose Gimenez. He hooks a left-footed volley from just outside the right post, near the edge of the area.
Sergio Rochet, the goalkeeper from Uruguay, handles Kim Jin-su’s lofted cross after the ball had recently crossed the boundary line, as an excellent lengthy pass releases him down the left side for South Korea in the 16th minute.
In the 13th minute, the pace has slowed down following a rapid start, as both teams are now trying to patiently construct their play from their defensive positions.
Ho-Sang Na, wearing a recent protective facial mask after undergoing surgery, skillfully curls the ball away from his opponents and manages to make a perfect connection. As a result, he secures a goal for South Korea in the 8th minute, earning them a victory in the game.
At the 5th minute, Na Sang-ho stops the 23-year-old forward from escaping by pulling him back with a gentle tug on his shirt, thus averting the potential danger posed by Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez, who has already shown his attacking prowess for Uruguay.
The Tottenham star has been very happy to say that they’re playing fair. Every time Son finds the ball, the fans from South Korea cheer and scream in the 3rd minute.
First minute: The formalities have been completed, and we’re now in progress at Education City Stadium.
5 minutes from the start of the game: It’s time for the national anthems. Uruguay goes first, followed by South Korea.
