I got 66/81, missed some very obvious ones.
I want 74 though because I typed indonesia.
00:41 remaining. and that was with me taking over a minute to work out the last one didn't require any dots in...
trying to work out how i could type in "united arab emirates" and it accept it was what caused most trouble
because fifa refused to let them play bare footed
e.g. THE FIRST ASIAN. srsly!?
But as IF. I got all of the first column apart from that...
missed Denmark and Jamaica. and Zaire. Bleh.
YES I KNEW ALL THE TEAMS OR I WAS ABLE TO WORK THEM OUT AND YES I DID KNOW THAT D**** E*** I***** PLAYED IN THE 1938 WORLD CUP OK?
would probably get stuck on an easy one cos it's so obscure.
Like the yanks reaching the semi final in 1930
That said, the book was AWESOME.
no ones gonna get all 81 surely? there's a killer amongst them
the 'killer' you're referring to would be d**** e*** i*****, yesno?
I meant Haiti
My knowledge of concacaf countries let me down.
I didn't even get Argentina
I stumbled on the whole Germany and West Germany being different teams etc.
Christ I'm glad that's over
Should have 56 if could freakin' spell
and among the four I missed were, somehow, Portugal and Turkey.
got dutch east indies. and yet failed to get greece, poland, morocco or senegal. whoopsie. i had no idea israel qualified in 1970, though.
highlight - scoring extra points for my knowledge of cold/balkan war history
low point - not getting holland or belgium
And it was only after I put in Senegal I realised I hadn't put down France
missed wales lolz
missed 5 totally obvious ones that I just overlooked (Ukraine, Turkey, Hungary, Poland, Ghana), 2 I should have got given a bit of proper thought (Angola, Cuba), 1 that was a bit unfair to be honest (Serbia and Montenegro - having typed both Serbia and Montengero seperately), but the other 3 were either completely out of left field or you'd never guess they were in the world cup (Kuwait?! Haiti?! Dutch East Indies?!?!?!?).
Forgot about the Czech Republic... And worked through all the Yugoslavia/Former Yugolsavia teams only to forget about East/West Germany. Whoops.
Never even heard of D**** E*** I*****
Got H****, S**** A*****, and C***
Missed Spain though.
High points: pretty much nailing central and South America
Low points: modernity and Eastern Europe
Forgot most of Africa after an initial flurry of activity. It's like the 2000's all over again.
which is good as well aseeing as i read this thread.
dutch east indies? is that sri lanka?
only missed about 4 i should have got:
What were once the Dutch East Indies are in the Pacific - Now Indonesia.
Can't believe I forgot Uruguay. Sorry, guays.
High point: Staring at CONCACAF for long enough that I guessed Haiti.
DUTCH EAST INDIES?!
