Odd Sports News: North Korea in World Cup

June 6, 2010

I wonder how many people know that North Korea will be having a team in the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. We sure didn’t. It’s only the second time in history that they’ll be in the tournament, and the first time was all the way back in 1966. Fascinating.

In related news, the U.S. beat the Aussies in their last tuneup match (you hoo!), and play England on Saturday for their first match. ) Canada didn’t qualify this year. (Sorry about that.)
