DPRK Women Defeats Finnish Rivals by 2:1

Pyongyang, August 8 (KCNA) — Football fans of the DPRK are very pleased by the news that the DPRK defeated Finland by 2:1 in the first league match of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2014.
Yun Chol Nam, a workshop head of the Pyongyang Electric Cable Factory 326, said:
The DPRK girls played a good game in the first match, and it pleases all employees of my workshop.
Han Yong Suk, a Pyongyang citizen, said:
It is praiseworthy that the DPRK girls won the first victory in the U-20 women’s world cup.
Eight years ago, the DPRK girls took the title in the U-20 Women’s World Cup 2006, thus promoting the country to the first Asian winner of the World Cup. I hope that the DPRK team would prove successful in the matches.
The DPRK team includes 14 players, who played an active role in the U-17 Women’s World Cup 2012.
The FIFA website selected Ri Un Sim as one of best players in the current world cup for scoring 8 goals in the six matches of the U-17 Women’s World Cup 2012.
