I'm proud of my country today.
yeah that 7-0 was humiliating for North Korea.
I have the feeling The North Koreans are going to be sentenced: Stoned to death when they get home....
I doubt that, they would rather send them off to labor camps where they can be useful.

SEOUL (AFP) - – North Korea made good on its promise to carry the World Cup clash with Portugal live but a hail of goals from the European side left the commentator speechless, South Korean media reported Tuesday.
The communist state's Korean Central TV Broadcasting Station had aired recorded footage of the team's first group match against Brazil.
The North, making their first World Cup appearance for 44 years and ranked lowest among the finalists, put up a dogged defence against the five-time champions from South America before going down 1-2.
Apparently encouraged, the station aired Monday evening's game in real time -- reportedly the first-ever live World Cup broadcast in the football-mad nation.
A commentator expressed disappointment when Portugal scored their first goal 29 minutes into the first half, according to South Korean media that monitored the broadcast.
The North Koreans should have been more alive to the forward threat posed by Cristiano Ronaldo's team, he said. "If we play our own style of game, we will be able to score."
The hopes were soon to be shattered. Portugal added an avalanche of six goals in the second half to knock the scoreless North out of the tournament.
The broadcast ended immediately after the final whistle.
Didn't they use an excuse to abort the broadcasting before the game was over? Anyway, I don't think they'll risk broadcasting live events like that again anytime soon.

Fucking lame arse Gyan! Now i have to listen to my friend boast about the money he's made because Uruguay made the semis.
Surely there should be a heavier punishment for directly handling the ball like Suarez did. A penalty shot isn't enough, because that ball was almost across the line, and would have been a certain goal. I know Gyan should have made that shot, but still. I say they bring in penalty goals, like rugby's penalty tries, for circumstances where certain goals are stopped by illegal means.
Anyway, i hope the Dutch whip their cheating butts in the semi final.
I'm hoping for a Netherlands V Argentina final.
Suarez was punished, he wasn't allowed to play in the next game. I think it was OK that he did it, as long as you take the punishment it's okay.
He didn't hurt anyone, brutality is far worse.
