North Korea has drawn intense interest from Japanese media ahead of its clash with Japan in a World Cup qualifying match on February 9 in Saitama.Can the DPRK get any more isolated?
It has been training in secret in southern China's Hainan island since mid-January.
According to South Korean media, the Norths team have donned disguises in Beijing while guards man the entrance to their practice sessions.
The Saitama match is set to be a politically-charged affair as the rival nations try to overcome angry disputes over North Korean kidnappings of Japanese nationals and Japan's long-term occupation of the Korean peninsula last century.
"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address
