Alright Simpsons, we believe!

It sounds so silly to quote the Simpsons predictions like Matt Groening is some sort of modern-day Nostradamus, but, if you haven’t been paying attention, it might be time to start!

The latest Simpsons prediction that could prove to be truth comes from the World Cup. In 1997 The Simpsons featured Portgal vs Mexico in a soccer game to determine the greatest nation on Earth and here, in 2018, Portugal and Mexico could be on the path to playing in that game in real life! The two countries are on a crash course to face each other in the World Cup finals if all the stars line up right. Now, before you go poo-pooing  this, let’s take a look at some of the biggest predictions they got right
