Portugal’s captain Cristiano Ronaldo expressed during the weekend that he felt confident about this game. Portugal’s next match will be on June 25th vs. Brazil and North Korea will take the field vs. Ivory Coast that same day.
The match ended 7-0. Some people have called this match the biggest victory in World Cup history, but actually the biggest was back in the 1982 World Cup when Hungary defeated El Salvador 10-1. But for now at this 2010 World Cup in beautiful South Africa, today’s match where Portugal crushed 7-0 over North Korea can be called the biggest victory so far.
