The Beautiful Game

Much respect to the North Korean football team. The Brazilians needed that competition to kick them into gear – and then it’s joga bonito. Breathtaking moves with the ball from Robinho. (I am kissing my fingertips and holding my hand in the air, as the Italians do.) Ah, beautiful!

Forget Kim Jong Il pre-selecting the North Korean supporters in the crowd. The team is made up of gutsy fighters and talented footballers. Watch out for North Korea this World Cup.

EXCERPT:

“North Koreans aren’t allowed to leave their country without government
approval. Chul didn’t say who paid for the group’s journey or what the
men did for a living.”
