Answer: Option D
: D

Italy / rank 2's opponent in Round 3 is what we need. Ideal Scenario in round 3 Italy (2) opponent is 7 (as 2+7=9). We could mark Rank 8(Spain) to be Italy's opponent in the quarters but we know Match No.7 in round 2 was an upset so Spain (7) will be replaced by the team which played and beat 7 in round 2. Round 2, Team 7 would ideally play Team 10 (7+10=17 "Round 2 Magic Number”) so Team 10 beats 7 and replaces its position in round 3! Answer is Team 10- Czech R (d)
