Assuming you're on the desktop version, there's an icon with a notepad and a yellow exclamation mark in the 3rd cluster of options in the formatting thing above the box where you type out your post

Type your answers between the two sets of square brackets

I can't give you the correct answer to 11 but I can say I was there and by the end of the evening I feel I was freinds with every single person who attended.
Also drank a very small pub dry of Guinness after. Well me and a few hundred other Irish men. And one cute Portuguese girl

You're the true winner of this quiz.

A little bump for this before the deadline as well, 16 is the current score to beat.

PS:

happy to review your scores if you disagree. Everyone scored 1 on the bonus for saying 5 (9-5 = 4. 5-4 = 1) except BamBam who score -1 for saying 3 (9-3 = 6. 5-6 = -1). The only other negative mark was for Fluxy who incorrectly naming Uruguay as a team who had qualified for every tournament but never made a quarter-final - they have only qualified for 5 cups.

Yay. I’m so proud

Answer chat:
I 100% knew Scotland were the nil kings. We nilled Ivory Coast and Spain. Then those pesky blacks got us.

I never knew 9 was the answer to the wee teams beating the big teams. For one I actually forgot that Italy are considered a big team, and I completely forgot that France were done by Tonga
