Nigeria vs North Korea Time and Live Score: Friendly Match 2010

Nigeria and North Korea are going to take on each other in their last friendly match before the World Cup Football 2010 kicks off on 11 June in South Africa. Both the World Cup qualifiers are looking to solve their problems in this match and get prepared for the summer tournament.


The match will take place today (6 June) at the Makhulong stadium, Tembisa in South Africa. The match begins at 14:00 GMT (16:00 local time). In Nigeria, the match starts at 15:00, while in North Korea, the match begins at 23:00.

Live Score

The live score of the match will be available at the following address:

Nigeria and North Korea have been drawn in two very tough groups. Nigeria would have to face Argentina, Greece and South Korea in Group B, while North Korea has been drawn in Group G which also includes Brazil, Ivory Coast and Portugal.

Nigeria’s recent form is not impressive at all. They drew with Saudi Arabia and Colombia in their recent two friendly matches. More than that, the injury news of John Obi Mikel has come as a big shock to the Super Eagles of Africa.

However, Nigeria has a number of experienced and quality players in Joseph Yobo, Obafemi Martins, Nwankwo Kanu, Yakubu Aiyegbeni and John Utaka. There are some who believe that African teams would perform very well in this World Cup as the tournament is going to be held in Africa. Nigeria has already showed they have the quality to surprise the football powerhouses.

North Korea, on the other hand, does not have a rich history in football, even though they were the quarter finalists of 1966 World Cup in England. That was the only World Cup appearance for the North Koreans. So, their qualification to this year’s World Cup has come as a big relief to the football fans in the country.

North Korea may not have any big star in their team, but the team combination seems to be very good. The squad includes only 3 players who play in foreign leagues- meaning most of the players play in North Korean league. So, it is pretty much understandable that the understanding among the players would be very good and they would rely on their team play, rather than individual performance. In their recent friendly affairs, North Korea drew with Greece 2-2, after losing to Paraguay 1-0.

Winning the match may not be the only objective of both sides, rather they would like to sort out the problems and fix the formations that they are going to deploy in the World Cup.
