Another day, another scoreless draw in Qatar.
Uruguay and South Korea ended their Group H opener with a final score of 0-0, marking the fourth such contest so far at the 2022 World Cup. Both sides had chances to break the stalemate, but nobody was able to get a goal across.
Uruguay’s opportunities were especially close. Diego Godín and Federico Valverde both hit the post, with Godín’s shot coming on a first-half header and Valverde drilling an 89th-minute rocket with his right foot.
