Portugal unmercifully pounded North Korea in the World Cup 7-0.
You hate to see that kind of thing especially since the game was aired live back in North Korea. Talk about embarrassing.
The loss eliminated the Koreans and left Portugal, with a +7 goal differential, in a dominant position to advance along with Brazil.
I guess it’s still possible for the Ivory Coast, with a -2 goal differential, to advance if Brazil beats Portugal and the Ivory Coast puts as big a whooping on North Korea as the Portuguese did but I wouldn't bet on it.
