SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean state television has aired coverage of its rival South Korea's World Cup match against Greece.

Korean Central Broadcasting aired the South Korea-Greece match Monday, two days after the event. The broadcast was monitored by The Associated Press in Seoul.

Commentators dryly narrated the game and offered mostly background information on the teams' rankings and game rules.

They expressed little excitement at the goals, offering analysis into the technical skills leading to the scores.

North Korea is at the World Cup for the first time since 1966. South Korea's SBS television owns the broadcast rights to the entire Korean peninsula, and says it will not give footage to North Korea due to political tensions.
