Soccer to unify Korea

Okay, it might not be permanent unification, but for a few days next month, North and South Korea will hold "unification" matches between their men's and women's nation teams. Both matches will happen in Seoul's World Cup Stadium. The men will play on Aug. 14th and the women will play on the 16th.

Here is the announcement.

The background to the timing of the matches has to do with Aug. 15th being the 60th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japanese colonial rule. Let's hope this good spirit floods off the pitch.
