North Korea vs South Korea: Tensions high for first meeting in 29 years
South Korea’s players have been forced to travel to Pyongyang via China and no broadcasters have been travelled meaning game won’t be on TV
Rumour has it that when Kim Jong-un lived in Switzerland he would often head over the border to Italy to watch Inter Milan play at the San Siro.
Today, though, it’s South Korea that are hopping over one of the world’s great divides to take on the north in Pyongyang for the first time since 1990.
At present, no-one is sure whether Kim will be in the stadium for the 2022 World Cup qualifier. What is clear is the fact that this is a hugely significant match in every sense.
Purely from a football perspective, there is plenty riding on it. North Korea have secured maximum points from their two qualifying matches to date.
A South Korea side captained by Tottenham’s Son Hueng-min have done likewise. Topping the group means automatic qualification for the 2023 Asian Cup, while finishing in the top two sends both teams through to the third round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
Given that the rest of the group is made up of Sri Lanka, Lebanon and Turkmenistan, both sides will be confident of achieving the latter.
Of greater significance for two countries still technically at war with each other, is whether this match will serve to thaw relations in the same way that a combined Korean team did at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
