Star-studded Uruguay hit the post twice but couldn’t break down South Korea’s strong defence as both the teams played out a pulsating 0-0 draw in a Group H clash of FIFA World Cup at the Education City Stadium on Thursday.

Diego Godin rattled the post with his header in the first-half, before Federico Valverde’s effort went in vain after crashing the crossbar. South Korea also had plenty of chances but they could not find the back of the net. 

South Korea started the game with plenty of pressing in the first half. However, Uruguay started dictating the tempo after the break. 
Hwang Ui-jo had the biggest opportunity for Korea but he had blazed his effort just over the bar. Darwin Nunez had a couple of cracks in front of the goal but dragged his effort wide. In the second-half, South Korea heavily relied on the counters but failed to penetrate the goal post.

Switzerland pip Cameroon

Riding on the only goal of the match by Breel Embolo, Switzerland pipped Cameroon 1-0 in a Group G match of the FIFA World Cup at Al Janoub Stadium, Al-Wakrah on Thursday. 

Cameroon started the game on a dominating note with some really good attacks. However, Switzerland too had their chances at the start but none of the sides could score any goal in the first half. 

In the second half, Embolo broke the deadlock with a calm and composed finish from inside the box in the 48th minute.
