North Korean football is, above all, 1966, `` The Game of Their Lives``, a quarter-final at the World Cup; first time that an Asian selection went so far in the competition. It's also the tears of Jong Tae-Tse at the 2010 World Cup, and then ... And then what else? A so-called coach sent to death camp? A television clip stating that North Korea has actually won the world? We do not know what to invent anymore, but it is precisely the opportunity to unravel the truth from the false, the myth of the legend.
