Two-time world champions, Uruguay come to the World Cup in Qatar with a mix of generations. After 15 years in charge of Óscar Tabárez, the Uruguayan national team has been led by Diego Alonso since December 2021.
The coach has brought players such as Fernando Muslera, Diego Godín, Martín Cáceres, Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani to the 2022 World Cup, as well as Rochet, Olivera, Valverde, Nicolás de la Cruz, Pellistri and Darwin Núñez, who make their World Cup debuts with the Uruguay shirt in Qatar.
South Korea is betting everything on Son. The Tottenham striker is the big star of the Asian national team and concentrates the team’s hopes of doing better than in 2018, when he fell in the first phase.
