Group H gets underway with an intriguing clash between Uruguay and South Korea, who have met at two previous World Cups.
In 2010, La Celeste came out on top thanks to a brace from Luis Suarez and the 35-year-old striker will again expect to be involved from the start.
South Korea’s prospects largely rest on captain and star man Son Heung-min, who has faced a race to prove his fitness after suffering a fracture near his eye socket while in action for Tottenham Hotspur.
Kick-off is at 1pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch World Cup 2022 wherever you are.
A paragraph or two on the team news in the lead up to this game. Who’s injured? Who’s getting the nod from the manager? Who’s pushing for a start, etc. We should try and mention the phrase ‘[Country] squad’ for both sides, and linking to each of the countries’ squad pages.
This should be edited in the first update on matchday, if there’s anything to add. Edit fully for the second update ahead of kick off and add starting XIs too.
Rochet; Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Olivera; Valverde, Vecino, Bentancur; Pellistri, Suarez, Nunez
South Korea (4-2-3-1):

Quick paragraph on tournament form. First game should mention how high up the teams qualified in their qualification groups and who they beat to get here. After the first game, just refer to their tournament form, what’s happened so far, who they beat to get here and possibly what they need from this encounter.

Kick-off and channel
Uruguay vs South Korea kick-off is at 1pm GMT on Thursday November 24 in the UK. The game is free to watch on BBC One and iPlayer.
In the US, kick-off time is 8am ET / 5am PT. The match will be shown on FOX/FS1 in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for the World Cup 2022, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the World Cup 2022, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
