Euros 2016

We had to do a maths activity for the UEFA Euros 2016. We had to find out whether a team could come third in their group with only 1 point from thier games. We made a group of 4 teams (England, France, Germany and Spain). At first we thought that we would need goal difference but we found out this was not necessary. We imagined the results of each of the games and we made England win all 3 of their games! Our table showed that we could have third place with only 1 point (England 9: 3 wins, Germany 4: 1 win, 1 draw, Spain 1: 1 draw and France 0: 3 losses). Mrs Diggle says we're not right! What do you think?
