    You probably won't see that again. Drogba is apparently out with a broken elbow.

    North Korea striker Tae-se Jong has promised to score in every game he plays at the World Cup and lead his country into the knockout stages.

    "I will keep my promise of scoring one goal per game," said Jong, who scored both goals in his country's 2-2 draw with Greece in a recent warm-up game.

    "In our group it will be Brazil and North Korea who will advance."


    I lolled.

    And Nani joins the staggering list of PL players ruled out of the World Cup through injury, according to SSN. Has there ever been a Cup where so many big name players have fallen to injury before the tournament?

    He looks pretty decent TBF and North Korea play with about 6 defenders.

    It slightly burns to see Gilberto still playing for Brazil. Should never have let him leave the Emirates. WAG.

    Should probably not be in the Brazil side to be fair, probably better options like ones that can pass.

    Haha, being a little harsh on Gilberto there I think. He was by no means cumbersome or lacking in ability with the ball at his feet. Granted he was not the best, but he was capapble of providing an attacking option. Scored lots of goals for Arsenal, some important ones too.

    EDIT: Though I would concede that there are indeed probably better options at this stage of his career.

    Can confirm that the more highminded qualifiers in a country's official name, the ****tier the country:

    See:

    Democratic People's Republic of Korea
    Democratic Republic of the Congo
    Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal
