Viewpoint: Uruguay is a superior name, but South Korea, this series is extraordinary, mostly playing in Europe. It should be fun to fight against the “brutal” army, but the famous Latin American team has a huge physical advantage. And the decisive timing of both Suarez and Nunez, including Edinson Cavani in the reserve bench, is still sharper than it should be able to crush “White Ginseng” easily.
Prediction: Uruguay 1-0 South Korea.
