Potugal Vs North Korea Group Match Preview of FIFA WC 2010 from South Africa

June 20th, 2010 | Author: buzzlive

Portugal came in this FIFA World Cup 2010 as a hot favourite. But in their first match against Ivory Coast almost without Drogba, they could not show their best effort. I will not say that Ivory Coast is not a good team but statistically Portugal are in better position. I said in one of my writings that a star player can keep busy at least four players as we saw in the case of Ronaldo. But other players failed to reap the benefits of it. Portugal troubled the Ivorian defence little. Their strikers could not possess much. I hope they will come back in today’s match. Actually they have to, because they are now sharing the same position with Ivory Coast and the match against North Korea is vital for both of them. But North Korea will tough cookie. They succeeded to keep Brazil at bay for 55 minutes by a fine, spirited performance and especially for the goalkeeper Ri Myong-guk who compelled Brazil to miss at least 4 goals.
