July 26, 2012
The female soccer players of North Korea are preparing for their first match against Colombia last night, when they observed that the flag presentation on screens around the stadium was of South Korea.
That led the team of North Korea to refuse to play the game scheduled for 19:45 at Hampden Park in Scotland.
An hour later decided to go to the pitch when the organization changed the flags.
The North Korean team won the match 2-0, but Coach Gun Without Ui emphasized the seriousness of the incident and said he planned to take issue with Games organizers LOCOG and FIFA.
When asked if he believed that the flag had been misused deliberately, Ui, said: “That’s the question I’m going to ask to LOCOG and FIFA.”
