South Korea and Uruguay shared the points on Thursday as Group H got off to a thrilling start. South Korea started the day the brightest with Son Heung-Min leading the charge. The Korean players constantly crossed the Uruguayan defense, but nothing major came of it.

It took the South American side 15 minutes to get into the game and from then on slowly began to dictate the pace of the match. In the 18th minute, Federico Valverde sniffed the goal and made the first major attempt of the match. However, his shot went over the crossbar. The teams continued to excite the fans with competitive football and in the 33rd minute Korea should have taken the lead. Uruguay almost took the lead in the 42nd minute when Diego Godin's header from a corner hit the post.

Both teams entered the second half with equal vigor and there was not much to separate the two teams. In the 63rd minute, Nunez made his way into the box, but his attempted pass was stopped by Korean goalkeeper Kim Seung-Gyu.

Uruguay nearly won in the 89th minute when Valverde's shot hit the post, much to the relief of the South Korean goalkeeper. 30 seconds later, Son almost made Uruguay keeper Rochet pay for a poor pass, but Spurs' shot went agonizingly wide.
