Uruguay reached the round of 16 as the Group A champion, while South Korea got into the last 16 finishing second behind Argentina in Group B. However, both South Korea and Uruguay put on some excellent display of football in their group stage matches.

Uruguay started the campaign with a goalless draw with France, before winning over South Africa and Mexico. South Korea may have suffered a 4-1 loss to top of the form Argentina, but the Asian side showed that they could emulate their success in 2002 World Cup when they reached the semi final.

Uruguay has two in-form strikers in Luis Suárez and Diego Forlán who together scored around 80 goals for their clubs last season. However, the Latin Americans could miss injured center back Diego Godín who missed the final group match against Mexico. If he can not recover fully from his injury, Mauricio Victorino would continue deputizing for him.

They have a very good defense in the presence of Diego Lugano, Jorge Fucile and Maxi Pereira. Forlan played as an attacking midfielder in the group stage with Álvaro Pereira adding firepower to their attack.

South Korea would expect a special performance from their captain Park Ji-Sung. The Manchester United midfielder would have to put on a dominating show in the midfield and create scoring opportunities for Yeom Ki-Hun and Park Chu-Young. However, South Korea could miss the service of their injured striker Lee Dong-Gook.

Overall, it seems to be a highly enjoyable affair with both sides playing at their best. The most important thing is that both sides are pretty much similar in terms of squad strength. So, it is less likely that football fans would experience a one-sided match.
