Uruguay qualified for the quarter-finals four years ago, before suffering a 2-0 loss to eventual World Cup winners France.

Diego Alonso’s side had already knocked out Portugal in the previous round, and the two sides will reignite their rivalry later this month.

But Uruguay must first face South Korea, who despite being eliminated in the group stage in 2018, recorded a famous 2-0 victory against Germany.

Paulo Bento’s men are led by Tottenham talisman Heung-min Son, who faces a race to recover from a fracture around his left eye to take part in Qatar’s opener.
