World Cup Champion

The World Cup features 32 international soccer teams that are allocated into eight groups of four. Within each group, all four teams play against each other. The top two teams from each group advance to a group of 16 teams. A win at this level accounts for 3 points, a defeat for 0 points, and a draw accounts for only one point to both teams. An astounding number of results are possible at this stage. Once the group is winnowed down to 16 teams, a bracket-style tournament ensues. This simulation details how teams of high, intermediate, and low ranking will fare in in the 2014 World Cup tournament using @RISK and PrecisionTree. Read more about this model here.
