Uruguay vs South Korea LIVE: World Cup 2022 team news and line-ups – Son Heung-min set to start


The Biggest Upsets In World Cup History

Uruguay play South Korea in Group H of the World Cup in Qatar.

Two-time winners of the tournament, La Celeste are seen as dark horses this year, with Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez in fine form, while veteran forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will look for one last hurrah.

Federico Valverde might be more important than anybody, and the Real Madrid midfielder will be key to dictating the tempo against South Korea. Son Heung-min is hoping to play despite suffering a face fracture in the build-up for the tournament while playing for Tottenham in the Champions League, meaning he will wear a face mask – at least during the group stage.

Both sides will be confident they can not only qualify but finish top of a wide-open group that also includes Ghana and Portugal.

Follow all the action with our live blog below, after the conclusion of Switzerland vs Cameroon


Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

74 mins: And here come the Cameroon changes. The striker Vincent Aboubakar, who was a surprise omission from the starting team, replaces Chupo-Moting and immediately takes the armband. Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is on too.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

70 mins: This time Shaqiri’s cross drifts long. Here comes a triple Swiss change, and Shaqiri is among those to be removed as well as Embolo. Interesting decision, that.

Frei, Okafor and Seferovic all come on.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

Switzerland are denied a second! They break into space once more – with Shaqiri cutting a dangerous ball back to Vargas. He looks certain to score – but Onana produces a great stop to his left.

Then, from the corner, Shaqiri whips in a lethal cross. Embolo is waiting for the tap-in, but Anguissa stretches at the last moment to clear! Great defending, although it was almost an own goal.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

66 mins: Chance! Cameroon’s best moment of the half. Mbeumo floats a cross in from a set-piece and Anguissa rises well to meet it. The header is straigth at Sommer.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

61 mins: Switzerland fly forward again – so much space for them now to attack into. Vargas is forced wide by the Cameroon defence, as he slashes wide. Have Cameroon gambled too much, too soon though. That’s the question.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

59 mins: There’s lots of space appearing for Switzerland now. Cameroon have to be careful. Shaqiri plays through Vargas, who had Xhaka free in the middle. However Vargas was offside, which was a relief for the winger as his cross was ballooned over the bar.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

57 mins: SAVE! Great work by Chupo-Moting, who beats Akanji around the outside to break into the box. Sommer makes the save at his near post, but Anguissa is furious after demanding the cut-back.

Jamie Braidwood24 November 2022 11:17


Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

54 mins: Almost another lovely move from Switzerland. They again manage to break the lines as Akanji splits Cameroon with a ball through to Shaqiri, who then couldn’t squeeze through to Vargas.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

52 mins: Now, can Cameroon respond. They were probably the better team in the first half but were caught cold from the restart. They barely had a touch from kick-off before Onana had to pick the ball out of his net.

GOAL! Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon (EMBOLO 48’)

BREAKTHROUGH! And what a lovely goal this is from Switzerland – scored by Embolo against the country of his birth!

Switzerland work it through the lines, with Xhaka playing into Freuler, who finds Shaqiri on the wing.

Shaqiri fires it across first time and Embolo is there to fire into the open net. The striker doesn’t celebrate out of respect, which is interesting.

The defending from Cameroon at the front post was quite poor- Embolo was left in acres of space – but the play leading to the chance was wonderful from the Swiss.
