Eight teams entered a knockout football competition. Extra time, where necessary, ensured that there were no draws. Four goals were scored in the final, but fewer than that in each of the other games. The scores in the two semi-final matches were the same. Illustrated below is part of the table of the total goals scored against and for each team.
In the entries show, digits have been consistently replaced by letters, different letters being used for different digits.
Which four teams got through to the semi-finals of the competition?
