INTRO TO 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP WP

Thanks for a timely puzzle which I completed in morning stupor.

I did find a few phrases/word choices a bit odd.

Nice puzzle. Most enjoyable and time we got a focus on the worlds most popular game.

The odd phrases/word choices:

I don't believe a group of teams "holds" a round robin. Instead I believe they play, or engage in, a round robin.

Then we had two new Slavic republics "'under their current borders." That's quite awkward. I think the phrase "as independent nations" would have been appropriate.

No kidding it was awkward. "Under current flags" would also have worked, especially given letter constraints -- that was already a long puzzle.

I didn't have the round robin puzzle so can't say for sure. But I'd agree the teams play in a round robin that's held by an organizer (such as FIFA).
