This is the end of an era for Uruguay. Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani have been two of the most successful strikers of the last decade, but with the pair both now 35 and in the twilight of their careers, it is Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez who La Celeste will pin their hopes on up front. Similarly, it will also surely be 139 cap legend Diego Godin’s last world cup in defense, with Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo — his long-term successor — also in the squad. After Oscar Tabarez’s incredible 15 years as manager, Diego Alonso, not yet a year into the job, will be taking charge of the two-time winners. 

South Korea’s star player is of course Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son, who despite recently having surgery on a fractured eye socket will be desperate to captain his country in Qatar. Known as the Taegeuk Warriors, manager Paulo Bento will want his team to come out swinging in this first fixture. Other than Son, he can call on some excellent players such as Mallorca’s Lee Kang-in and Napoli’s Kim Min-jae, one of the highest-rated defenders in Europe this season. Although in 2018 they managed to beat holders Germany 2-0, the side failed to get out of the group and even with another tough group , anything except reaching the knockouts will be a disappointment. 

Group H is one of the hardest to call with four teams of similar levels and some world-class attackers. Will Son be fit? Will Suarez and Cavani roll back the years? The best way to find out is to watch the Uruguay vs South Korea live stream. 

Here's how they lineup: 

South Korea XI: Kim Seung-gyu, Kim Moon-hwan, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-su, Jung Woo-young, Hwang In-beom, Lee Jae-sung, Na Sang-ho, Hwang Ui-jo, Son Heung-min.

Uruguay XI: Rochet, Godin, Gimenez, Olivera, Bentancur, Vecino, Valverde, Pellistri, Suarez, Nunez.
