Romanian Team

Before their game with Spain, the Romanian national team took to the pitch with their squad numbers printed on their backs as maths equations.

The country has one of the worst rates in the European Union for children dropping out of school, so the stunt was part of a Government initiative to boost improve children's interest in maths.

The children had no problem with their arithmetic at the end of the game, as it finished in a no scoring draw!
