Jan 5, 2021
I think the correct answer is actually relatively easy to get on the first try because it doesn't just "contain" the letter A, it starts with it and has 3 in total.

Since so many seem to have got it from the start, maybe a tweak would be a good idea?

(Love these elimination quizzes BTW, nice job!)

No chance of a few extra minutes so those of us who know nothing about football can just run through every single one of the five countries that still works at the previous clue until we eventually get the correct one?

(As it happens, I got it first try, but only because I’d already chosen it as an earlier answer!)
