world cup -north korea

I choose North Korea first because it is probably the country with the most outside chance of winning and the least works translated if any well my research has turned up a 2003 article from words without borders click here .There is also a graphic novel  with very 1940s or 50s style graphics translated via words without borders ,there is a lot of political control and censorship over everything in North Korea so getting the man on the streets view hard to get .hence a short post to start with .

north korean graphic novel

the graphic novel is available on-line at words without borders and is worth a half hour read ,retro and heavily full of propaganda for north korea .

world cup memories –

The last time north Korea played in world cup was 1966 ,before my time but my grandfather said he remember a lot of security around them at the time ,they played well beating italy and qualify for quarter finals being knocked out in a 5-3 lose to Portugal .

the quarter-final lose

 do you know any books from north Korea ?
