Kim Jong Un Greets Women East Asian Cup Winners at Airport

DPRK women footballers arrived at the Pyongyang International Airport on Monday after winning the 2015 EAFF East Asian Cup.

During the games held in Wuhan, China they trounced the Japanese, Chinese and south Korean rivals, scoring 9 goals by applying guerilla-style offensive tactics and thus created the myth of winning every match.

Supreme leader Kim Jong Un together with Ri Sol Ju greeted them at the airport.

Accompanying him were Choe Ryong Hae, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Ri Il Hwan, department director of the C.C., the WPK, Kim Yong Hun, minister of Physical Culture and Sports, and Kim Jong Man, chairman of the Football Federation of the DPRK.

At 4:00 p.m. the plane entered the area before the terminal.

Amid the playing of a welcome music, Kim Jong Un together with Ri Sol Ju came out to it.

He shook the hand of each footballer and warmly congratulated them on bringing gold medals to the country. He had a photo taken with them.

Warmly congratulating them, proud daughters of the country and its people, once again in the names of the WPK, the government of the DPRK and all service personnel and people for demonstrating the dignity and might of the power of Juche in the games by displaying indefatigable mental power and by applying the guerilla-style offensive tactics set forth by the Party, and preparing a precious gift dedicated to the 70th anniversaries of the liberation of the country and the founding of the WPK, he gave warm thanks to them.

Greatly excited and touched to have the honor of being greeted by him upon their return home, the women footballers rushed to his arms with tears welling up in their eyes.

Huge crowds at the airport enthusiastically welcomed the footballers who came back in triumph after adding glory to the country with indomitable spirit, grit and high technique.

Uno strepitoso Ri Myong-Guk tiene la porta inviolata

Derby a senso unico in quanto ad occasioni con la SudCorea padrona del campo e uno strepitoso Ri Myong-Guk (miglior portiere del torneo) a bloccare qualsiasi tentativo di rete, con almeno due parata prodigiose.
Si chiude in questo modo l’ottima partecipazione all’EAFF Cup di Wuhan: l’obiettivo era testare la squadra in vista delle prossime fondamentali gare di qualificazione mondiale e, pur senza i tre fondamentali “stranieri”, si sono viste ottime cose.
Solo la sconfitta contro la Cina lascia l’amaro in bocca, visto che √® arrivata da due disattenzioni difensive, e nel caso di risultato positivo avrebbe potuto garantire il primo posto.
Nonostante il pareggio la SudCorea vince il torneo, approfittando del pareggio della Cina contro il Giappone.
RPDC terza a pari punti con la Cina seconda.

Ancora strepitose invece le ragazze della nazionale femminile che portano a casa un altro grande trionfo dopo la Coppa del 2013, i Giochi Est-Asiatici del 2013 e i Giochi Asiatici del 2014. Nonostante la lunga squalifica imposta dalla FIFA, le nordcoreane hanno inannellato uno strepitoso quadriennio (vincendo tutte le competizioni a cui hanno partecipato) che si concluderà nel febbraio prossimo con le qualificazioni alle Olimpiadi di Rio de Janeiro.
Ancora strepitosa Ra Un-Sim, capocannoniere del torneo a tre reti.
