While it’s easy to dismiss World Cup predictions based on a video game, EA Sports’ FIFA franchise has actually successfully predicted the last two World Cup football tournaments.
In 2014, it correctly bet on Germany to lift the trophy, while back in 2010 it accurately said that Spain would emerge victorious from the pinnacle of international soccer. As a track record, it’s not too shabby – and surely a better bet than trusting an octopus.

This year, the popular football game’s choice to win the World Cup is perhaps a bit surprising, with the title outing France as the tournament’s winner based on a simulation of every World Cup match.
Les Bleus will apparently defeat Germany in the final 5-4 on penalties, following a 1-1 stalemate in regulation and extra time. FIFA 18 also has French star Antoine Griezmann tying Spain’s Isco for the World Cup ‘golden boot’ on five goals apiece.
France will progress to the final by beating Belgium in the semi-final (quite the continental derby), while Germany will dispose of reigning champions Spain in the other penultimate match, the game suggests.
What of England, you ask?
As you’d (probably) expect, it’ll be another case of penalty agony for the Lions, with Gareth Southgate’s men tipped to crumble at the spot to Colombia 5-4 in the last 16 – another excruciating early World Cup exit.
Surely a video game can’t trump the experts again, can it?
