Uruguay and South Korea played out a scrappy goalless draw to share the points in this Group H World Cup match at Education City Stadium.La Celeste had the best chances early on, with Federico Valverde controlling well and volleying just over after Jose Gimenez’s delightful long ball.

While a desperate situation for South Korea on a counter-attack saw Mathias Olivera overhit the ball with Darwin Nunez in on goal.But Uruguay should have been behind moments later when an unmarked Hwang Ui-Jo leaned back and blazed over from 10 yards out.

Verteran centre-back Diego Godin was then agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock, outjumping Lee Jae-Sung and driving a powerful header against the post with Kim Seung-Gyu well beaten.Nunez raced clear after Kim Min-Jae’s slip but Kim Seung-Gyu was able to narrowly intercept his cut-back as Uruguay flooded the box in hope of a tap-in.
