Despite not qualifying for 2014 World Cup, North Korea has reached the final, according to state media.
While the rest of the world is sitting tight in anticipation of Sunday’s Germany-Argentina tilt here in Rio, North Koreans have reportedly been told their country’s soccer team has been dominant at this summer’s event.
A video posted to YouTube channel Korea News Backup, which features reports from North Korea’s state-run media, appears to show a newscaster reporting on North Korea’s fictitious success at the World Cup.
QMI Agency cannot confirm the authenticity of this video.
The sequence shows “highlights” of North Korea’s 7-0 win over Japan, 4-0 win over the United States and 2-0 win over China, all of which didn’t take place, of course.
The rhetoric also contains video of North Korea’s Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un, being superimposed over the big screen at a FIFA Fanfest while receiving rounds of applause from World Cup fans.
I’m surprised they didn’t show him personally scoring all the goals.
