Anyone hear about the North Koreans trying to get around the 3 keepers rule?
It's a FIFA rule that you must name 3 goalkeepers in your 23 man squad. To try and take an extra outfield player they named one of their strikers as their 3rd choice goalkeeper, thinking this was a pretty clever way to only take 2 keepers. Given the likelihood of them playing more than the 3 group games is pretty non-existent, they are unlikely to need to use a 3rd keeper.
However FIFA have now confirmed that as he was named as a goalkeeper, he will only be allowed to play as a goalkeeper and cannot play as an outfield player. The rules are you have to name 3 keepers and as he was named as a keeper, he's in the squad as a keeper.
Also Giovanni Dos Santos has apparently withdrawn from the Mexico squad in protest of his brother being left out.
