Databases SQL Basics Finding the Data You Want Filtering by Dates

I am inputting my code as: SELECT * FROM results WHERE id = "Hessle" AND played_on >= "2015-10-01"; what is wrong?

We're back in the sports team database. There's a results table with the columns id, home_team, home_score, away_team, away_score, and played_on. Find all the matches in the results table where "Hessle" was playing away as the away team and if they played on or after October 1st 2015. Date format is "YYY-MM-DD".

SELECT * FROM results WHERE away_team = "Hessle" AND played_on >=  "2015-10-01"

is the answer and you just needed to change the ID to away_team

The id column of a table is usually the primary key and represented as an integer. So it doesn't make sense that Hessle would be in the id column. What column makes more sense?

Let me know if this helps!
