North Korea Is Telling Its Citizens That Their Team Is In The World Cup Final
North Korea is telling its people that their men’s national team is in the World Cup Final:
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.
Here’s the video. You can get a rough translation by turning on captions and using YouTube’s translate caption feature:
This is yet another example of just how pervasive the Kim dictatorship is, and just how hard it will likely be to integrate this nation into the real world when that regime finally falls.
