For the first time since 1966, North Korea has qualified for the World Cup. But Kim Jong-il has his own ideas on how his country should participate in the competition. Only North Korea’s victories will be broadcast – which means no live games. And game coverage will be heavily edited in order to make North Korea appear superior to the other teams.
“Like everything else there, the regime will have complete control over the World Cup,” explained Kim Jong-il.
The odds are 350-1 against the regime’s national team, so North Koreans are not likely to see World Cup games any time soon.
