EA Sports has its winner for the World Cup

According to EA Sports, this year will boil down to France against Germany. Their prediction indicates the result of the game will hinge upon penalties. The eventual winners are said to be France with a final score of five to four. Engadget notes this is despite the fact that Germany hasn’t lost a penalty shoot out since the 70s.

Additionally, their prediction says that France’s road to victory went through Belgium while Germany topples Spain. EA Sports even went on to say that the Golden Ball Award will be awarded to France’s Antoinne Griezmann. The company hasn’t divulged just how they came to their prediction. One can assume its by simulating the season in FIFA 18 given that games like Madden have successfully predicted seasonal outcomes nine times already.
