World Cup – How many ways?

Clicking on this image will show it larger in a new window.

How many games are played in each round of the World Cup?  In the opening round each of the four teams in a group must play each other (round robin format).  From then on each round is a knock-out round ... if you lose then you are out.  Let your students enjoy learning about what they are watching and question what and how much each team must do. There is so much math in the World Cup games.  Enjoy!
