⚽ Uruguay National Team

The Uruguayan national team is ranked 14th in the world FIFA rankings. Beyond an unexpected loss to Iran, Uruguay won 3 of the 5 friendly matches they played in their preparation. The other was a 0-0 draw against the United States.

👟 Uruguay's Road to the World Cup

Despite being the third best team in South America, Uruguay came very excluded from the 2022 World Cup. Until matchday 14, they were ranked number 7 in the CONMEBOL Qualifiers.

However, they strung together four wins at the end of the CONMEBOL Qualifiers to claim third place. In doing so, they secured a direct berth to Qatar. A place that is normally theirs.

🔝 Uruguay's Best Players

Although Uruguay's average player age may seem high (26.9 years), they are in the midst of a generational change. In fact, some of its first-team squad is under 25 and already playing for the best teams in Europe.

These are some of Uruguay's most valuable players:

  • Federico Valverde (Real Madrid)
  • Darwin Núñez (Liverpool)
  • Ronald Araújo (Barcelona)
  • Rodrigo Bentancur (Tottenham)
  • Giorgian de Arrascaeta (Flamengo)

It will be the last World Cup for a generation of players who returned Uruguay to the highest levels of world football. This includes Suárez and Cavani, the two top scorers in Uruguayan national team history.

⚽ South Korea National Team

The South Koreans are ranked 28th in the FIFA rankings. In preparation for the World Cup, South Korea have played 9 friendly matches after closing their qualification. They managed 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats (1-5 against Brazil and 0-3 against Japan).

👟 South Korea's Road to the World Cup

The South Korean national team began their road to Qatar 2022 in the second round of the AFC Qualifiers. They were seeded in Group H against teams like Lebanon and Sir Lanka.

By finishing top of Group H they advanced to the third and final round. There they faced Iran, another team qualified for this edition of the World Cup. In fact, the Iranian team finished above the South Koreans.

Despite finishing in second place, they clinched a direct berth to the World Cup in Qatar. South Korea closed the group with 23 points, the product of 7 wins, 2 draws and just 1 loss.

🔝 South Korea's Best pPayers

The South Korea national team has one of the oldest squads in this World Cup. Their players average 27.4 years of age. That said, they have some very interesting players emerging from the ranks of well-known clubs.

Let's take a look at South Korea's most valuable players:

  • Heung-min Son (Tottenham)
  • Min-jae Kim (Napoli)
  • Hee-chan Hwang (Wolves)
  • Kang-in Lee (Mallorca)
  • Ui-jo Hwang (Olympiakos)

Son Heung-min will want to use his last World Cup appearance to continue climbing the South Korea national team's all-time goalscoring chart. He is currently in fourth place.
