Goalkeeper ploy backfires

NORTH KOREA’S tactic of naming an extra striker instead of a third keeper has turned into a spectacular own goal.

World chiefs Fifa have warned Korea that Kim Myong-Won will only be allowed to play in goal, rather than his usual position of centre-forward.

A Fifa statement read: “The three players listed as goalkeepers can only play as goalkeepers during the World Cup and cannot play outfield.”
