World Cup Puzzle

Post by biggeordiedave » Wed Jun 06, 2018 8:54 am

I got sent this at work and thought others might like to give it a go!

England's group finishes like this:

England - F 7 / A 1 / P 9
Belgium - F 3 / A 3 / P 4
Tunisia - F 2 / A 3 / P 4
Panama - F 1 / A 6 / P 0

England beat Tunisia 3 - 0. What are the rest of the results?

Answers in a spoiler please!

Just sat for 20 minutes and worked this cronut out only to come on here and discover the condition that England have beaten Tunisia 3.0. Didn’t see that so in my version they won 2.0. Fucks sake.

Well done to everyone that got it. I'm interested to know how people approached it. Trial and error? Or did you work it out through deduction?
