North Korea media ‘tells country that its team has reached World Cup final’
North Korea’s state controlled media is apparently telling their football fans that the national team have reached the World Cup final in Brazil…
We’ve known for a long time now that supreme leader Kim Jong-un controls the flow of information to his people, with the television channels only reporting positive stuff about the country.
But in a report posted on YouTube, the media have been caught broadcasting that North Korea are on course to win the biggest prize in football, despite not actually qualifying for the World Cup.
The report says North Korea’s brave side crushed Japan 7-0, USA 4-0 and China 2-0 in the group stages, before going on to reach the final… against Portugal.
Of course, the real final, which takes place this Sunday, is between Germany and Argentina.
Included in the coverage are ‘highlights’ from the matches, with the team shown scoring goals and cheering – although the clips look pretty old..
