All time World Cup inter-federational stats

A few notes:

1. Games which were decided on penalty kicks (there were only a few)
were counted as draws.
2. Oceania is included with Asia.
3. Israel's 1970 results are included as part of Asia as they were in
this region for qualifying (they are now considered part of Europe).
4. The T82 values are the totals from 1982-2018 inclusive. They
are an attempt to show how the various federations compare in the
"modern" era of the World Cup.
