Uruguay coach Diego Alonso believes his team's World Cup group will go down to the wire in next week's final matches, emerging positive from a goalless but entertaining opening draw with South Korea that featured flashes of flair.

Alonso was happy with the point against a spirited South Korean side who took the game to Uruguay before the South Americans found their rhythm and threatened with creative moves and precision passing in an end-to-end Group H match.

Veteran captain Diego Godin, playing in his fourth World Cup at 36, produced a strong performance at the back and came close to scoring when his first-half header hit the woodwork and Federico Valverde struck the post in final minutes.

"It as a tight game between two competitive nations. First 20 minutes was South Korea, we struggled, we couldn't take the ball from them but we could adjust," Alonso told reporters.

"Second half we were better, we attacked a bit more, tried to be more competitive. I liked a lot of things the players did today."
