North Korea will be taking part in the final tonight against Portugal after defeating Japan seven goals to nil, USA four goals to nil and China two goals to nil. They'll be facing Portugal tonight and Kim Jong-Un is expected to attend the match along with various other diplomats from the Communist state.

This isn't the first time North Korea has gone bonkers for sport. Kim Jong-Il, his dad, apparently had the greatest single round of golf known to man. He scored a 38-under par round of 34 and this feat of golfing excellence was witnessed by twelve of his personal bodyguards.
Because they wouldn't lie, right?
Here's the news broadcast in question. We thought Avery Jessup was the news-reader on North Korean TV?
Update: Turns out it's fake. Ah well.
