I think Brazil will kick North Korea's ass, though I can't help feeling sorry for the North Koreans and wishing they'd will. 4-0 is my forecast.

Feel free to discuss!

Most of us here in Brasil agree that our team will make us suffer.

They are brave, disciplined, hard-working, predictable.

A team where there are no soloist.

This tasking, sad and seriuos conception of the football came together with the "love to country" discourse, of unlimeted donation, of overcome.

There are a enlightened and cosmopolitan way to love Brasil. And there are the crude and donkey patriotism.

In this playful and imaginary war, we left home some of ours best weapons: talent, joy and geniality.

So I say, let the artists win.

While your reply was enjoyable to read, I can't help but wonder if you had "herbal or chemical help"... hehe

Brazil to win it 4-0

Lets face it we all know Brazil should walk it, but I suspect most fans (perhaps even Brazilian fans) will cheer on the North Koreans.

I've also noticed quite a few of the forums world cup followers have the DPRK flag, just like me! ?

I myself will support the North Koreans! ?Its an odd thing as to why NK is getting the support, perhaps because of the poor NK people? supporting the biggest underdog in the cup? or we get to see a football team that we've never seen before! ?It's the last two for me!

Hello everyone I am a bit of a lurker on the site but despite people saying North Korea is a poor country and we should cheer them on I feel I should just point out a few little things. The North Korean people or people of the DPRK for the most part will have many restrictions on even seeing the world cup. I direct you to both the following links http://www.dailyexpresso.co.uk/2009/11/world-cup-tv-coverage-banned-by-kim.html

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/6649440/Kim-Jong-il-bans-World-Cup-coverage-unless-North-Korea-win.html Also that no citizens of the DPRK have been allowed out the nation, despite what you might think. No fans in the stands will be actual DRPK nationals from what I understand http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/world-cup-2010/7719050/Chinese-actors-to-cheer-for-North-Korea-during-World-Cup.html

Even if they could afford it no DPRK citizen is just allowed to leave with a passport like in the USA or UK to go on holiday. Lastly I also want to point out that the DPRK does not have a team for the sake of the nation its fielding a team for “Dear Leader” Kim Jong il (Who is personally interested this world cup and wants to put his team out) while I am hoping that the DPRK scores so the people whom are allowed to watch this kind of event get to see it at all I think we should remember that this isn’t a poor nation as such it is a control one and just because Kim Jong Il has a team on the world stage please be under no illusions this is a country that is impoverished and controlled to the max by its leader not its enslavement or being in the 3rd world or anything else. For more background click here or if you don’t believe me that it’s really this bad http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/newsnight/8701959.stm

So come on DPRK I’m supporting you tomorrow but don’t be fooled about the state of the nation or why it’s like it is, it’s not Africa.

The North Koreans are probably touring the Townships to see how horrible Democracy and Capitalism is :whistle:

I'll go against the grain and say North Korea 1-0.

Its not just an issue of rights though... they have power cuts etc and they still wont get to see any match with usa or south korea in. And I really cant see it being allowed if they loose. Regardless of the rights issue I still feel few people will get to see it the DPRK doesnt have bars and stuff and you basically need permission from what im sure i heard in a documemtary to go to any sporting event even inside the nation.
