I respect Korea but I have seen the match again and again. It is correct that in term of ball possession, Korea had more possession than Uruguay. But it needs to be underlined that in almost of all their matches in this World Cup, Uruguay had less possession than their opponents. Therefore, I am not convinced if I can assess the performance of the team from their possession. In my personal opinion, I think Uruguay played slightly better than Korea.

"Korea played a great game, but that slice of luck went our way, not theirs this time – that's football. It was a very hard-fought victory that took a lot out of us. The team's solidity and cohesion really came to the fore late on," Oscar Tabarez, Uruguay coach.
