International Friendly Football Game Korea DPR Suffered a Loss from Paraguay.
Korea DPR’s football team lost to Paraguay 1-0 on Sunday in an exhibition match in Nyon, Switzerland.
Key players, such as the forward HONG YONG JO and goal keeper RI MYONG GUK played a remarkable match. Passes from HONG YONG JO were a great threat to Paraguay’s goal keeper, but unfortunately the Koreans were not able to convert them into a goal. Korea DPR will appear in their first World Cup next month in 44 years, which is an astonishing achievement already. It was a very close match up until the last 5 minutes, when Nan Song Chol made a fatal error of committing a handball foul. Rogue Lois Santa Cruz managed to convert the penalty kick into a goal, which not only gave the South Americans the lead, but also the win.
