And no, for a change, it hasn’t anything to do with all those permutations and combinations that usually predict match outcomes.

Rather, it’s a somewhat relaxing way we have of pondering over a Mexico- Portugal clash for the coveted title and the cup! And the credit for the foretelling once again goes to The Simpsons.

One of the most loved American sitcoms that have forever plunged you into deep thought alongside rewinding your grey cells, the Simpsons has a history of accurately foreseeing some of the most epic moments of history. And with the current World Cup certainly seeing Mexico and Portugal as somewhat favorites, the course of history might as well be defining the near future.

And though the prediction for the current World Cup summit clash came way back in 1997 in the 9th season of the classic, let’s not forget that the series have had quite a knack when it comes to proclaiming events way ahead of their time. And specifically, when it’s soccer.
