North Korea 1 – 0 Italy


I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking ‘there must be a limited market for this’. And you’d be right. The North Koreans are still the unfaltering Communist stronghold they were over 50 years ago. But hey, I’m just here to document the upsets. And at the time, it could be argued that this was the biggest to have ever happened. In 1966, Italy had won a quarter of all the World Cups. North Korea…had not done that. In fact, their only other appearance was in 2010. So there was no chance they were going to win this. And yet here we are.
