VIDEO: North Korea's U-16 Goalkeeper Pulls Suspicious Match Fixing Stunt
In North Korea’s U16 international fixture with Uzbekistan, their goalkeeper pulled one of the most suspicious match fixing stunts ever seen.
It was the final group game of the AFC U16 Group Championships, and Uzbekistan were already through, with the winners playing Iraq in the quarter finals.
However, midway through the first half, the North Korean goalkeeper, Jang Paek Ho, conceded a very bizarre goal.

As Jasurbek Umrzakov, the Uzbekistan goalkeeper, punted the ball downfield, Paek Ho attempted to head the ball away before it reached his goal, running way off his line.
However, he missed the ball completely and tried running back after it, before slipping and watching it roll into the back of his empty net.
His attempt to save the ball from going into the net looked a little bit too suspicious if you ask me.
