Best story of the World Cup so far [Jun. 11th, 2010|12:13 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

The final World Cup roster for each time has to have 23 players, 3 of which are goalkeepers. As the ESPN commentator put it, North Korea tried to "smuggle in" an extra striker by calling him a goalkeeper. (it didn't work)

I thought this was funny too. There was some discussion of whether he could start out playing keeper and then switch positions after the game started, but apparently FIFA wasn't going to allow that either...
