The World Cup of FOOD! (Inspired by 538.com)

So, I saw a tweet from Nate Silver of 538.com about who would win the World Cup if it were about food... and thus this stupid project was born.

Here are my choices as to who would advance:

Grp A: #MEX
Grp A: #FRA
Grp B: #GRE
Grp B: #ARG
Grp C: #ALG
Grp C: #USA
Grp D: #GHA
Grp D: #SER
Grp E: #JAP
Grp E: #CAM
Grp F: #ITA
Grp F: #PAR
Grp G: #BRA
Grp G: #CIV
Grp H: #CHI
Grp H: #SPA

Then, seeding the round of 16:

#FRA 1
#JAP 2
#MEX 3
#PAR 4
#GRE 5
#ALG 6
#GHA 7
#ITA 8
#BRA 9
#CHI 10
#SPA 11
#ARG 12
#CAM 13
#SER 14
#CIV 15
#USA 16

Round of 16 results:

#FRA vs #USA = #FRA
#JAP vs #CIV = #JAP
#MEX vs #SER = #MEX
#PAR vs #CAM = #CAM
#GRE vs #ARG = #ARG
#ALG vs #SPA = #ALG
#GHA vs #CHI = #CHI
#ITA vs #BRA = #ITA

Quarterfinal Results:


#FRA vs #ITA = #FRA
#JAP vs #CHI = #JAP
#MEX vs #ALG = #MEX
#CAM vs #ARG #CAM

Onto the Semifinals:

#FRA vs #CAM = #FRA
#JAP vs #MEX = #JAP

The fight for third:

#CAM vs #MEX = #CAM

And, for the World Cup of Food:

#FRA vs #JAP = #JAP

Your choices may be different...
