Group A

Uruguay vs Denmark
Dario Silva and Alvaro Recoba caused Denmark most of the early problems, during the 1-2 defeat in Ulsan.

France vs Uruguay
Credit to France, the World Champions pushed forward to try and score whenever they could: Micoud, Wiltord, and Trezeguet all having half-chances in the area. The South Americans played more conservatively, relying on releasing Recoba when the French looked stretched.

Senegal vs Uruguay
Even though they scored three goals against Senegal, it was not enough to bring Uruguay out of the group.
