June 20, 2014

I made this table mainly to confirm and schadenfreude over (a. yeah, not a verb, and b. can't believe I spelled 'schadenfreude' correctly on the first try) England's misery, then thought I might as well share it -- joy shared is joy doubled and all that. The only scenario where England makes it to the knockout is the one in red, even then subject to other factors (goal difference? phase of the moon?). All this is based on the assumption that England beat Costa Rica, of course.

The violation of the law of conservation of points (ever since they introduced three points for a win) grates as usual.
