(www.euro2000.org) or newspaper supplements collect information regarding
one of the teams in the competition. Facts about the country itself:
Population, area, population density etc. Draw the flag and decide whether
it has rotational or reflective symmetry.
For each individual
player find out their age, caps, height and weight Calculate the mean,
mode and median of these numbers Draw a scatter graph to show the relationship
between age and caps (positive relationship?)

1. How many games were played in the group?
2. How many goals were scored?
3. What was the difference between the number of goals scored at halftime
