The Uruguayan national team debuts before South Korea in the World Cup Qatar 2022under the technical direction of Diego Alonso and with a combative team full of experience. Next, he knows how the Charrúas would play in the match against the North Koreans.
Sergio Rochet, Nacional’s goalkeeper, would be in charge of guarding the ‘Celeste’ goal on this occasion, instead of Fernando Muslera in his first World Cup appearance, while in defense there would not be much new.
Waiting for Ronald Araujo, who is trying to recover against the clock after a muscle injury, Martín Cáceres, Diego Godín (or Sebastián Coates), Josema Giménez and Mathias Olivera would occupy the last Uruguayan line.
Later in the midfield the presence of Federico Valverde and Rodrigo Bentancur is almost certain, along with Matías Vecino (or Lucas Torreira), Nicolás de la Cruz (or Giorgian de Arrascaeta). Finally, Luis Suárez and Darwin Núñez would act on offense.
