Both Korea Teams at FIFA Women's U17 World Cup Semifinals

Another milestone for Korean soccer teams (South and North) at FIFA World Cups: both teams will be playing in the quarterfinals of the Women's U17 tournament at Trinidad and Tobago on Sept. 21. The North Korean team [photo] is the defending champion of the U17 Cup. A possible final match between the two Korean teams would be a historic event, as it may boost hopes for rekindling of inter-Korea relations.
