The scenario: You are the manager of England in this year’s World Cup. You have successfully steered your team to the Final against Brazil! However, after 90 minutes and 30 minutes extra time played the score is still 0 – 0. The winner of the World Cup is to be decided on penalties!

I am working in a TV station and the full time scores are coming in for a round of results. Unfortunately, although I know the half time results the full time results have been e- mailed in WITHOUT the names of the teams on. Can you quickly attach the correct results together? Is it generally true that the team that was winning at half time won the match? http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/preliminaries/matches/index. html How would this information affect your strategy to the game?
