First and foremost, we don’t know how real this is. It’s certainly a video – that much we know – but whether it genuinely comes from North Korea’s state media or whatever the region’s version of Brass Eye is, we don’t know.
Either way, it’s pretty mental. Ahead of tonight’s World Cup Final, it would appear that North Korea are claiming to be in it having trounced geopolitical rivals Japan, USA and China 7-0. 4-0 and 2-0 respectively en route to the decider with Portugal. They only beat China 2-0? Well, you have to keep your allies sweet when it comes to your nonsensical fantasies.
There’s undoubtedly a report ready to go about how North Korea won the final 15-0 and how it puts them in good shape for their upcoming victorious Champions League campaign.
