NORTH KOREA

THEY ARE:
The scary communist country from Asia in blue. This country is a genuine mystery being under a cloak of curiosity for the rest of the world. Bill Clinton went there recently but he didn’t get to see many sights.

AS A FOOTBALL NATION:
Also known as the DPR Korea Football Association much like their home nation they are flooded with mystery. A few days before the competition it has been shown that they cannot actually afford their practice facilities so they have been training in a local gym next to grunting hard bodies. Maybe this is the Rocky tactic, maybe the Korean Apollo Creed is taking them back to the streets. Word also is that their third choice goalkeeper is actually a striker. The fiends! There only other appearance in the World Cup finals was in 1966 where they shocked Italy by beating them 1-0.

MY OWN EXPERIENCE:
I have no previous experience of North Korea.

IN 2010:
Unfortunately Korea DPR is expected to be the whipping boys of the group of death Group G. Having to play Brazil, Portugal and the Ivory Coast is not ideal for a nation playing in their first World Cup finals since 1966.

FAMOUS PLAYERS:
They have no famous players.

MOST OBVIOUS REFERENCE:
Kim Jong-Il.

AWAY FROM FOOTBALL:
It’s all about Kim Jong-Il who apparently has the world’s largest movie collection (I believe on VHS). Unfortunately he himself is most famous for his puppet interpretation in Team America.

NUMBER OF PEOPLE FROM NORTH KOREA THAT I KNOW:
Are you kidding?

QUOTE FROM A NORTH KOREAN:
Not realistic.

DO I LIKE THEM:
I more pity them. Their games hold promise for lots of goals.

FINAL COMMENT:
Chill out.
