PYONGYANG, North Korea -- It has been five decades since Pak Du Ik scored the winning goal in North Koreas shocking upset of Italy to reach the quarterfinals at the 1966 World Cup, a match that remains the countrys most memorable in football folklore.Now, 50 years later, if I think of that time, I was really young ... and although Italy was a very strong team, we beat them, the strong team, Pak said in a recent interview with Associated Press Television News to commemorate the anniversary.I still havent lost the feeling of happiness from that. Also, I can still remember really clearly the way the British crowds supported our team.North Korea ended Italys run at the tournament with the 1-0 win at Middlesbrough, England, on July 19, 1966, then lost to Portugal in the quarterfinals.A group of players returned to the stadium in Middlesbrough in 2002 to celebrate again the win over Italy, wearing red jerseys and scarves and receiving rapturous cheers from the crowd.Pak attended that ceremony, but had a quieter reflection closer to home for the golden jubilee.North Korea has reached the mens World Cup finals only once since then -- losing all three group games in 2010. The 66 performance remained the best run by an Asian team at the marquee tournament until South Koreas surge to the semifinals in 2002.While teenage players recall that North Korea beat Italy in 66, some are vague on the details. Jang Kyong Il, coach of the national under-14 womens team, is among those who want to ensure the highlights live on.Still, up until now, for us Korean sportspeople here, Pak Du Ik is a real sports hero, he said.

Western Sydney will have to overcome one of the A-Leagues best home records in Perth on Sunday if last seasons grand finalists are to claim a second win.The Glory are undefeated in their past eight games at nib Stadium, with six victories and two draws, and last weekends tough away loss to Brisbane will have Kenny Lowes side amped to put the Wanderers to the sword.To avoid being punished the visitors will need far more efficiency than the last fortnights wasteful displays against traditional battlers Newcastle and Central Coast.In particular, the defensive errors that allowed those two very winnable matches to slip to draws wont fly against Andy Keoghs 90 per cent shooting accuracy and Diego Castros creative influence.Whether or not coach Tony Popovic is privately ruing the slow start, in public at least he insists team confidence isnt an issue.There are things we have to do better ... but the signs are good, Popovic said.Weve had two good performances for 60 minutes (against the Jets and Mariners).Weve got to extend that period and see if we can deal with those small details a bit better.But theres no finger-pointing or pointing out players individually - its a collective.Its unclear who Popovic will select to lead the line, citing Kerem Buluts improvements in training but not confirming whether or Brendon Santalab will get the nod.ddddddddddddHe was also cagey on whether attacking trio Jumpei Kusukami, Mitch Nichols and Nicolas Martinez would combine for a second time.The Glory looks likely to be without skipper Rostyn Griffiths, who hasnt trained properly this week since aggravating a neck injury in a collision with the Roars Brett Holman.Striker Adam Taggart (calf) could be out for a fourth straight match while Nebojsa Marinkovic is expected to play despite missing Fridays session with ankle soreness.Lowe will again watch from the stands as he serves the second of his two-match ban but expected his absence would have no impact, having already given his team a midweek kick up the arse over their loss.STATS THAT MATTER:* Western Sydney are undefeated in their last three games against Perth (W2, D1)* They are the only active team against whom the Glory are yet to keep a clean sheet* Perth (58%) are the only side this season with a shooting accuracy of greater than one in two, though the Wanderers (50%) arent far behind China Jerseys Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts Camo China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China NFL Hoodies ' ' '
