    Nigeria is not an underdog in football to Iceland. Nigeria is better than Iceland in football.

    Hi there. 'Underdog' was defined using GDP per capita. Hope that makes sense!

    It was incredibly misleading to put all of Latin American countries into the same basket and measure their GDP, because some countries like Chile have higher GDP per capita than Italy, Paraguay and few others are high income countries, you can't put them in the same category as Peru.

    Chile GDP per capita is $25K, Italy is $35K. A little more, but still pretty close. Also, i meant to say Uruguay not Paraguay. Uruguay is also $25K per capita. both countries are high income economies.

    For the olympics and FIFA World Cup the population size will not coordinate with population size since the number of players/teams are the same regardless of country size.
