    Naw, North Korea lost in Iran 2-1. It was the decisive game in North Korea that Latin Pride is talking about, which ended 0-0.

    Amazingly, during the match in Iran, even when North Korea were loosing, they were still defending with 11 men. They take defensive tactics to a whole new level. :D

    With australia gone this was NZ's big chance to qualify - our group was laughably easy. In the past Australia have had to then go on and play someone from South America. We had to beat bharain.

    I doubt it'll stay this way.

    Dont get me wrong, I think that Ried is a talented player, who is also going to move abroad and make it in one of the bigger leagues in Europe, but ther were no real future for him on the Danish NT, and I'm happy that he chose to play for New Zealand instead... The Danish league always develop lots of talent (both Danish and foreign) and Denmark have around 50 players in the top-5 leagues of Europe (and 17 players in the Dutch league at the moment), so personally I think young "foreigners" like Ried should chose to play for their own country, rather than chosing a slim option to play a few caps for Denmark.
