Video: North Korea close to winning the 2014 World Cup, country's controlled media claims

Published on: 14 July 2014
The controlled media in North Korea has announced that they have reached the World Cup final

Germany beat Argentina in the World Cup final 1-0 on Sunday, well, that’s what most of us know.

But North Korea’s controlled media are telling their country that the national team have reached the World Cup final in Brazil.

We’ve known for some time that leader Kim Jong-un controls what the people of his country hear, and this time North Korea are in the final of the World Cup. Urm, they didn’t even qualify Kim?

In a Youtube clip, the media are recorded reporting that North Korea are close to claiming the biggest prize in football.

They also report that North Korea cruised through the group stages with a 7-0 win over Japan, 4-0 against USA and a 2-0 victory when they ‘faced’ China.

None of these actually happened, of course. The news report included footage of the matches that were clearly played years ago.

North Korea will face Portugal in the final of the World Cup (Well, thats what they think).

    Folks, nyartekyi and the rest of the gfac crimals and coaching staff are pretty much telling us something close to this nonsense too. They are busy not taking responsibilities and blaming players. How can you take your wife n kids on our dim sitting in first class n have players sit in coach, how can we take useless coaches to world cup n then experiment when we get to the world cup, how we no million gfac people accompany team n enrich themselves, how can we renew coach contract n bump up the fee right after epic failure n he has no shame but sign the contract. After all these nonsense, the argument they are making is that becos we drew with germany, we could have come up with the 2nd place if not the gang of 3.
