When reading this you have to take in to account the fact that many of the teams didn't start competing until post WW2 e.g. England, Holland. This is actually a very meaningless table. It would be interesting to see the ranking based on points per game or points per world cup, instead of just on points as is now the case.

A Scottish bloke was in a team that progessed past the first round?

There was no qualifying round - teams were invited.

or, I think it may be the only world cup final where the team losing at half time went on to win the game! Thats just a BIG guess though! :)

Clearly I didn't consider other possibilities:o

The answer that I was looking for was that no matches were drawn in the tournament....
