“North Korean striker told to play in goal after squad blunder”

This is already a top-3 story from the World Cup:

North Korea have been told striker Kim Myong-won can only play as a goalkeeper at the 2010 World Cup after he was named as the third-choice keeper in his national squad.

Coach Kim Jong-hun named two goalkeepers in his final squad of 23, but added Kim as a third, hoping to use him as an extra option up front during difficult group games against Brazil, Ivory Coast and Portugal.

Fifa, however, have scuppered the plans claiming the three goalkeepers named can only play in goal and not double as outfield players.
