Brazil vs North Korea 2010

Watched the game last night and I must say that I was pretty impressed with North Korea's showing. Not only did their excellent defending prevent the Selecao from having a goal in the first half but they also managed to have the Brazilians concede one goal. Another thing that I liked with the NK team was that they didn't have any "drama queens". Jong Tae-Se was down and in pain with a nasty gash on his left knee after clashing with Melo, however, Tae-Se played on. If that would've been a star player from say, Portugal, he would've been lying on the grass for ages and milking the incident for all its worth.

The game ended 2-1 for Brazil with North Korea scoring near the end of the match. Kudos to the North Korean team for making the Brazilians work every step of the way in a match that a lot of people thought was gonna be a walk in the park for the Selecao.
