  1. Great scoop homeboy. Dunno if u considered any additional macro indicators to improve the predicting power of ur model; would probably make the model less simple and perhaps less elegant but it’s just a thought.

  2. As a Chinese student, I really wish this model is true. China has the largest population and second GDP in the world. If the model is a direct predictor for soccer level, China would have one of the best soccer teams.
