Second defeat for Middlesbrough team in North Korea

Middlesbrough Ladies football team suffered a second defeat during their ground-breaking tour of North Korea, state media said.

The squad was invited to the secretive country to reinforce a relationship formed at the 1966 World Cup when North Korea played in Middlesbrough.

On Tuesday, Kalmaegi beat the Middlesbrough side 5-0, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

They also lost their first match 6-2 against April 25.

The Middlesbrough team arrived in the capital Pyongyang on Saturday.

As well as the matches, they went to a reception hosted by the British Ambassador Peter Hughes and surviving members of the 1966 World Cup squad, KCNA said.
