By the 20-minute mark, Uruguay started to play more and created a few goal occasions, gaining more confidence. The result was still 0-0, though.

After 30 minutes, the game slowed down, and South Korea regained control.

South Korea could score in minute 34 with Hwang Ui-jo, who received the ball in the middle of the box, but sent it over the crossbar.

At the 42-minute mark, Godin hit the post with a header, creating the first clear occasion for Uruguay.
