    North Korea? They have a football team? And they let this guy out to play in Europe? Maybe I’m being naive, but I thought North Korea was sort of a black hole.

    Yes, they have a football team, which made it to the last World Cup but lost to Portugal 7-0. It was such an embarrassment to the govt that many players were afraid to return home. I’m surprised they let one of them out to play in Europe, maybe it’s because it’s to neutral Switzerland. Maybe he has defected or sought asylum by now.

      We can only hope.
