North Korea to host 2026 World Cup

Well not quite but if you were to believe Simon Brodkin’s antics earlier today than that could certainly be the case.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter was forced to halt a news conference when UK prankster Simon Brodkin – whose stage name is Lee Nelson – threw a pile of banknotes at him saying, “here you go, Sepp”.

Brodkin is known for his pranks and interrupted Kanye West’s Glastonbury set last month and tried to join the England squad as they boarded the plane for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.


He also attempted to warm up with Manchester City players before a Premier League match against Everton in 2013.

Shortly after interrupting the Fifa conference, he posted a message from the Twitter account of another alter ago – Jason Bent – saying: “Excited to be at Fifa meeting Sepp Blatter to secure the #NorthKorea2026 World Cup.”

Quite a funny to do but to be honest he should have been dragged out the back by security and given a good shoeing for abomination which is that Lee Nelson character.

Sepp Blatter once finding that he’s English will probably use that as another stick in which to beat English Football with….oh well it’s seemed funny at the time.
