The real winnners of the World Cup

Theresa Mallinson in ‘The World Cup Day that was: 8 July’  The Daily Maverick  reports:

The UK’s Guardian newspaper has come up with a way of working out the real winners of the World Cup – according to how well countries have fared when their results are weighted for population, GDP, and GDP per capita. We’re sorry to report that South Africa put in a poor performance in all three categories, however you work the numbers, while other emerging countries fared rather better. The winner of the tournament by population is Uruguay, by GDP it’s Paraguay, and by GDP per head, which seems to be the fairest measure, Ghana comes out tops. Congratulations to the Black Stars!
