You've got to feel sorry for the North Koreans, the only thing they've got to play for is the glory of their 'dear leader', the same charming man who today decided to cut off food rations for the entire population.

You've got to feel sorry for the North Koreans

 

North Korean media is reporting that they won the game 31-0. The Dear Leader himself scored 19 of the goals in the first half, and he would have scored even more if he hadn't left at half time to write an opera and play a round of golf in which he scored 18 holes-in-one.

Was quite bizarre watching one of the Koreans crying his eyes out during their national anthem.

 

That because he loves his country so much or he's weeping for the state that it's in?

Nah. He knows that if they fail he will never see his family again

That is just great. :D Spain will lick her wounds, but surely rebound. Great day for that tiny nation.

Excellent result for the Swiss. Fair play to them.

Hitzfeld knows his stuff, and there are some good players in the Swiss team. Spain just ran out of ideas to break the back 4 down.

 

As for the opening games - well, a lot of big teams 'did an England' and just didn't impress their on-paper superiority. Also quite a lot of dull football - though 2nd games, starting tonight, should have a bit more energy now...

...and the upset is in the books. Switzerland 1 - Spain 0.

I laughed my head off! Just the fact of loosing to Switzerland (!) must be soo-o-o humiliating to the Spanish team...
