North Korea's World Cup hopes were ended when going down 7-0 at the hands of Portugal on Monday but Ivory Coast still has a chance qualifying but must improve their goal difference to the tune of nine goals and hope Brazil beat Portugal.
The Ivory Coast in particular are full of top class players who will need to be on top form if they are to make it through Group G which on paper looks to be the toughest of the entire tournament. The Africans will be looking to their Premier League contingent to perform well if they are to do the business and they of course include Didier Drogba and Saloman Kalou of Chelsea who will need to lead from the front.
Very little is known about the North Korean team heading to South Africa but if they are to have any chance in this one at all they will need to stick together and defend as a unit. They are clearly lacking any world class players though and that is likely to hinder them in their quest for a successful tournament.
This match will be being played at the same time as the Brazil v Portugal match up so punters can keep across both matches through the World Cup Live Scores service which is on offer. With only spots on offer for the three big teams then this is the bet way to get all the information as it happens when the goals are flying in. We can only see an Ivory Coast win in this match with the little North Koreans expected to be overpowered and out classed by the strong looking team from Africa.
