South Korea World Cup Team Pelted With Toffees After Returning Home

Ice cold.

After leaving the Brazil World Cup with no wins, the South Korean team arrived home to face bitter and angry fans.

Upon arriving at Incheon Airport, players were pelted with toffees. Yes, disappointed fans hurled toffee at the players as they lined up for photographs. 

Why toffee? “Go eat a toffee” is an insult in Korea along the lines of “get lost” or “screw you,” reports The Guardian.

This was South Korea’s first World Cup without a win since 1998 in France—an unacceptable failure that should be dealt with accordingly.
