What I did:
I was reading, and I saw an article that stated facts that were not well known about the countries participating in the upcoming football tournament called "Euro 2016".
What I learnt:
- Austria had moved up from 105th in the FIFA world rankings to 10th when they were qualifying for the tournament in 2015.
- The Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has scored 64% of Wales' goals in the qualifying of the tournament.
- Iceland is the country with the smallest population to qualify for the tournament with a population of only 330,000 people.
- Sweden will be reliant on their star player Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the tournament.
- Albania has the least number of shots in the qualifying with only 28 shots in all their matches.
- Germany's Toni Kroos has made 315 passes in the qualifying of the tournament which is more than any other player in the qualifying of the tournament.
