World Cup: This just in -- North Korea still loses

North Koreans got their first look at their team in the World Cup -- 17 hours after the match ended.

North Korea's 2-1 loss to Brazil in its World Cup opener Tuesday took place in the middle of the night Tuesday, Korean time. But the country's state-run Korean Central Broadcasting service -- the nation's only TV station -- does not broadcast overnight or during the day. So the first chance it had to show the game came Wednesday evening.
