First the opportunity came to Nuniz. He got a chance to score from outside Korea’s box. After this, Suarez also got a good chance, but he too could not capitalize on it. It is not that Korea did not get a chance. In the 34th minute of the first half, Korean star Hwang Eui-jo also had an easy chance to score, but his shot went over the goal post.
Even before the end of the first half, in the 44th minute, Uruguay captain Diego Godin had a chance to score from the penalty corner, but he also missed the goal with the help of a header. The ball hit the goal post and came out.
Uruguay’s power in the second half, but there was no goal
In the second half, the Uruguayan team increased its offensive game even more. When the team failed to score, Luis Suarez was made to sit. In his place, Edinson Cavani was brought on the field as a substitute. But even Kawani could not show any magic. No goal could be scored in the match even in the extra time after 90 minutes and the match ended in a goalless draw.
