For this assignment, you will simulate the playing of a Football World Cup. This is a simplification of the actual FIFA World Cup but the simulation you will develop requires no prior knowledge of the rules of football. This section specifies the required functionality of the program.

Only a text interface is to be used for this program, there is to be no GUI. More marks will be gained for a game that is easy to follow with clear information/error messages.

System description

The Football World Cup is played between 4 teams. The teams are ranked from 1 to 4, with 1 indicating the highest ranking and 4 the lowest. The Cup is played in two stages: Preliminary and Final.

During the Preliminary stage, each team plays the other three teams resulting in a total of six (6) games played. The games during the Preliminary stage occur sequentially and the result of each game is shown on the screen as it is completed. In the Preliminary stage a team gains 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss.
