Uruguay And South Korea Set Unwanted World Cup Record In Goalless Draw

Published

Luis Suarez, Darwin Nunez, and Heung-Min Son all failed to score as Uruguay and South Korea played out a goalless draw in their Group H opener at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Diego Godin’s header crashed against the post while Federico Valverde saw his thundered long-ranger hit against the woodwork late on for Uruguay as South Korea held on for a draw.

However, no team was able to muster a shot on target in the entire duration of the game, becoming the first match in World Cup history not witnessing any shot on target.

Uruguay has gone 465 minutes since they last conceded a goal in the group stage of the World Cup, with the draw against South Korea being their fifth such consecutive clean sheet.

The outcome leaves both teams’ chances of making it to the round of 16 extremely open as Uruguay gears up to take on Portugal and South Korea to take on Ghana.
