England is the largest country in Great Britain & the UK, & the only team in the World Cup Semi-Finals ruled by a queen.

Croatia is located in Southeastern Europe, bordering the Adriatic Sea, between Bosnia & Herzegovina, & Slovenia. It is geographically diverse with flat pains, low mountains & highlands, & coastlines.

Whatever happens in #ENG #CRO tonight here are three things I think our political leaders could learn from England’s success and from the wonderful Gareth Southgate (from a liberal lefty) THREAD
1/ We have no need to be afraid of experts.

Gareth Southgate’s approach to management has been a lesson in humility. He has no illusions that England’s illustrious history will work it’s magic. He has gone out and learned from experts worldwide.…
If only our political leaders could see it. May/Johnson/Raab are suspicious of “foreign judges” and bang on about “sovereignty” - but Southgate knows the best way to work in the national interest is to open channels to learn from the best of the world, not close ourselves off.

Most Swedes live in the south where climate is milder & there's better connectivity to mainland Europe, though population clusters are found along the Baltic coast too.
Bonus fact: Sweden has almost 100,000 lakes!

Final group stage table
World Cup prediction evaluation

✅Coin flip would thus give expected 19.5 correct
✅All predictions show ++value over coin flip
✅Some modest value over naive methods (ELO, FIFA, $$)
✅Now I will run a second competition with all 16 teams x 12 rankings in the knockout phase
✅In 2014 forecasters correctly anticipated between 9 and 11matches correctly
✅FIFA rankings had 10/16
