Video: North Korea close to winning the 2014 World Cup, country's controlled media claims
Germany beat Argentina in the World Cup final 1-0 on Sunday, well, that’s what most of us know.
But North Korea’s controlled media are telling their country that the national team have reached the World Cup final in Brazil.
We’ve known for some time that leader Kim Jong-un controls what the people of his country hear, and this time North Korea are in the final of the World Cup. Urm, they didn’t even qualify Kim?
In a Youtube clip, the media are recorded reporting that North Korea are close to claiming the biggest prize in football.
They also report that North Korea cruised through the group stages with a 7-0 win over Japan, 4-0 against USA and a 2-0 victory when they ‘faced’ China.
None of these actually happened, of course. The news report included footage of the matches that were clearly played years ago.
North Korea will face Portugal in the final of the World Cup (Well, thats what they think).
