The viral clip shows adoring fans applauding images of leader Kim Jong-Un and claims that the side is due to play Portugal after winning its group.

Perhaps most humorously of all is the mock report of the scorelines that took the side through to the knockout stages - giving the side an goal difference of plus 13 from three games.
