In a truly bizarre press conference, North Korea's coach Kim Kwang Min had an excuse for his team's performance that...I don't think I've ever heard before.

"On 8 June our players were hit by lightning," Kim said. "More than five" were hospitalized, and "the goalkeeper and the four strikers were most affected and some midfielders as well."


Needless to say, Kim continued, the players were not at 100 percent and as a result "their strategy could not be implemented" today.
