Wonder what you would find if you frisked the North Korean World Cup soccer team?
Answer: The coach and players might have been tortured.
Interesting… I thought about this happening immediately following their embarrassing performance in this year’s FIFA World Cup.
Daily Mail reports:
Fifa has launched an investigation into allegations that the North Korean World Cup coach and players were punished by the government after they lost all three of their games in the tournament in South Africa.
Last month, Radio Free Asia said that the Korean squad, apart from two foreign-based players, were subjected to ‘harsh ideological criticism’ after their team conceded the most goals of all 32 at the tournament.
Their coach Kim Jong-hun was also publicly humiliated and sentenced to hard labour for their performance.
Asian Football Confederation President Mohamed Bin Hamman, who recently travelled to the secretive communist nation, said he was hopeful the investigation would prove conclusive.
‘There was an unconfirmed report that these players have gone through torture or something like that, but I can’t confirm that.
‘I haven’t seen anything with my eyes or heard anything with my ears. Maybe this Fifa investigation can clear the air.’
Got to love communism, right? Let’s hope these allegations aren’t true, but it is North Korea after all…
