Uruguay after a while… Will Son Heung-min’s mask fight spirit shine?

[앵커]

At 10:00 this evening, the Korean national soccer team will play the first match of the World Cup in Qatar, the first round of the group stage against Uruguay.

Captain Son Heung-min can compete, but Hwang Hee-chan is unable to compete.

Let’s connect with reporters from the newsroom to find out more.

Yes, about 1 hour and 30 minutes from now, at 10pm, Bentuho will play the first group match against Uruguay at the Education City Stadium in Qatar.

The starting list has not yet been released.

Something has been decided to some extent.

Director Bento announced Son Heung-min’s appearance through a press conference.

Director Bento expressed his anticipation, saying, “Son Heung-min has become accustomed to the mask” and “melted well into team training.”

The first leg is important enough to say that winning the first leg secured a bridgehead for advancing to the round of 16.

Therefore, there are even observations that Son Heung-min is likely to play as a starter.

On the other hand, the absence of Hwang Hee-chan, who suffered a hamstring injury, is a pity for soccer fans.

With the absence of a player who can shake the Uruguay defense with powerful movements from the side, it is of interest to see who will fill the vacancy.

Isn’t Uruguay a strong enough team to be called South America’s strong team against the national team?

[기자]

Yes, as you said, Uruguay is a representative South American strong team.

First of all, if you look at the FIFA rankings, Uruguay is 14th and Korea is 28th.

I’m falling behind in the past record. Uruguay is inferior with 1 win, 1 draw and 6 losses.

Uruguay has world-class players in every position.

Players to be concerned about in the attacking team should beware of Núñez, a 23-year-old rookie with a tall stature and quick feet, and Valverde, who is considered the ‘nucleus of the midfield’ in the midfield line.

Uruguay is also determined to engage in an all-out war in their first match.

Our Taegeuk warriors must have been stimulated by watching the previous matches between Saudi Arabia and Argentina and Japan and Germany.

It is an analysis that even if they concede the first goal, they have a chance of winning if they dig into Uruguay’s defensive loopholes with confidence until the end and catch up.

This World Cup is a series of incidents in Asian countries.

Bentuho is also interested in whether it can continue the incident.
