World Cup: North Korean media tells country that its team has reached the finals

by Farid Abbas

With all the happenings in Brazil 2014, this just has to be the best World Cup ever, right? (especially if you’re a North Korean football fan); apparently, the drama of Brazil 2014 continues as North Korea’s state controlled media is unabashedly telling the country’s football fans that the national team has reached the World Cup final in Brazil.

According to Metro News, for some time now, supreme leader Kim Jong-un controls the flow of information to his people, with the television channels only reporting ‘positive news’ about the country.

A report posted on YouTube shows the country’s media has been caught broadcasting that North Korea is on course to win the biggest prize in football, despite the fact that the team did not actually qualify for the World Cup.

According to this report, North Korea’s valiant team crushed Japan 7-0, USA 4-0 and China 2-0 in the group stages, before going on to reach the final… against Portugal. Included in the media coverage are ‘highlights’ from the matches, with the team shown scoring goals and cheering – although the clips look really old.

Pictured below is a snap shot from the video, showing Kim Jong-un receiving applause for the country’s ‘brilliant performance’ in Brazil.


However, the real final 2014 World Cup match holds tomorrow, with Argentina and Germany competing for the number 1 spot in this year’s tournament.
