Romania footballers promote numeracy with equations on back of shirts

You do the maths

Tom Victor

Every day’s a school day.

The Romanian football association have found a novel way to help improve children’s numeracy – by forcing them to solve equations in order to identify footballers’ squad numbers.

Romania take on Spain tonight in a friendly, and have presented an impromptu maths test for those looking to work out which player is wearing which number.

Fair play to the Romanians, this truly is a (4-3) in (500,000×2) idea.

It’s just a shame Adrian Mu(8-6) wasn’t able to end his international exile for the occasion.
