Uruguay vs South Korea – teams announced

| 26.06.2010

Uruguay make one change in personnel for their last 16 clash with South Korea, which kicks off at 3pm.

Diego Godin returns to a Uruguayan defence which has yet to concede at the World Cup, and Mauricio Victorino drops to the bench.

Uruguay striker Diego Forlan is 7/2 to score first, and he is partnered in attack by Luis Suarez, who is 6/1 to open the scoring.

South Korea, meanwhile, are unchanged from their 2-2 draw with Nigeria.

South Korea’s goal threats are scattered across the pitch. Centre-back Lee Jung-Soo is the top scorer with two, while captain is Park Ji-Sung 12/1 to break the deadlock.

The confirmed starting line-ups are:

Uruguay: Muslera; Fucile, Lugano (Captain), Victorino, M. Pereira; Arevalo Rios, Perez, A. Pereira, Cavani; Suarez, Forlan

South Korea: Jung Sung-Ryong; Cha Du-Ri, Lee Jung-Soo, Yong-Hyung, Lee Young-Pyo; Park Ji-Sung (Captain), Kim Jung-Woo, Ki Sung-Yeung, Kim Jae-Sung, Lee Chung-Yong; Park Chu-Young
