  1. I like that you listed not only the countries, but their flags and anything else necessary to know, such as who the host was and everything. Good job.

  2. Hi Alex,
    I love the new posts! I think it might be helpful to say what the six leagues acronyms stand for, so people like me don’t have to go search for the actual names. Keep up the good work!

  3. That us a really through of the teams to have to play each other twice in min-games before the real competition starts.
