DPRK Women’s Football Team Will Win at Asiad: Expert

Pyongyang, September 30 (KCNA) — Prof. and Dr. Ri Tong Gyu, a football expert of the DPRK, expressed belief that its women’s football team would emerge winner at the ongoing 17th Asian Games.
When the DPRK beat south Korea 2:1 in the women’s football semi-finals on Monday, he told KCNA:
Experts of various countries have spotted the DPRK women’s football team as a hopeful at the current Asiad before its start.
Such view is quite reasonable, because the DPRK team took the titles at the 2013 East Asian Cup and the 6th East Asian Games and involves such talented players as Ra Un Sim, Kim Un Ju and Ho Un Byol. The team scored 11 goals in group league and quarterfinals without losing even one point.
Its finals with the Japanese team to be held on Oct. 1 will be expected to be very keen.
The two teams had competed with each other in the finals at the 15th Asian Games, eight years ago. At that time the DPRK team beat its Japanese rival 4:2, emerging two-time winner in the wake of the 14th Asian Games.
I am sure that the DPRK team will win at the current games when it displays its strong stubbornness and collectivism and sustains its tactics properly as it has done in the previous matches.
