While contemplating the ignominy of Iceland making the World Cup and the US not even though the US has a population a thousand times larger, I suddenly realized that none of the three largest countries in population made it: China, India and the US. Then I began wondering what the top 10 countries in population were, so I looked it up and was surprised at about half of them - would never have guessed. Just for fun, anyone want to give it a try without Googling it?
I'll give a hint. Only one European country is in the top 10.
