Fans of all nations have lit up the 2010 World Cup with their incredible passion, noise, not to mention at times bizarre costumes... During Portugal's recent 7-0 demolition of North Korea, a small section of North Korean fans who had somehow managed to make it to South Africa, supported their hard-working and at times very skillful team throughout the entire 90 minutes.
The site of the Korean fans waving flags and cheering as their team conceded their seventh goal, showed that the country could win off the field, if not on it. The display seems all the more pertinent following England fans booing reaction to the woeful draw against Algeria. Today England face Slovenia in a must win game in Port Elizabeth. Failure to do so will certainly resort in a deafening chorus of boo's, possibly the only noise loud enough to drown out the Vuvuzela's.
England are not North Korea, and of course fans shouldn't cheer the team off following another poor result, but this is now last chance saloon and the hordes of England fans who have travelled thousands of miles to be with the team owe it not just to the players, but to themselves, to give as much support as humanly possible until the final whistle goes...
