Romania's Soccer Team Tries To Get Children Excited About Math

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Soccer fans who took in the friendly match between Spain and Romania this weekend needed some extra brain power to spot their favorite players because the Romanian players had math equations on the backs of their training jerseys, the correct answers revealing the players numbers.
