Group H kicks off with an intriguing clash between Uruguay and South Korea, who have met at two previous World Cups.
In 2010, La Celeste won 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 hinge largely on captain and star Son Heung-min, who faced a race to prove his fitness after sustaining a fracture near his eye socket while he was in action for Tottenham Hotspur.
Kick off is at 13:00 GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the 2022 World Cup wherever you are.
A paragraph or two on team news ahead of this game. Who is injured? Who gets the green light from the manager? Who pushes to start, etc. We should try to mention the phrase ‘[Country] squad’ for both teams, and a link to the team pages of each country.
This should be changed in the first game day update, if there is anything to add. Fully edited for the second update before kick-off and also added starting XIs.
Ratchet; Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Olivera; Valverde, Vecino, Bentancur; Pellistri, Suarez, Nunez
South Korea (4-2-3-1):
Kim; Kim, Kim, Kim, Kim; Hwang, Jung; Na, Lee Son; Hwang
Quick paragraph on the tournament form. The first game should mention at what level the teams qualified in their qualifying groups and who they beat to get here.

Kick off and chain
The kick off Uruguay-South Korea is given 13:00 GMT on Thursday November 24 United Kingdom. The game is free to watch on BBC One and iPlayer.
In the United States, kick-off time is 8 a.m. ET / 5 a.m. PT. The match will be broadcast on FOX/FS1 in the United States. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for the 2022 World Cup, you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!) and prevents you from watching it. You can, however, use a VPN to circumvent this, without resorting to the illegal streams you found on Reddit.
A virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service cannot determine where you are and will allow you to watch. And all information exchanged is fully encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good value for money options. For the 2022 World Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
