The Simpsons predicted that Mexico would make it to the World Cup finals

The Simpsons cartoon TV show has made one too many omens that have come true. Being the most impressive the episode on which they predicted that Donald Trump would become president of the United States of America. Everyone laughed at such a crazy idea and witticism, but nobody is laughing now…

The World Cup final remains at a distance but that hasn’t stopped soccer fans from suggesting this year’s winner had been predicted by The Simpsons. An episode in the animation’s ninth series, The Cartridge Family, showed a match “to determine which nation is the greatest on earth, Mexico or Portugal?”

Social media fans became convinced that this could be the World Cup, with one uncanny detail tying it to this summer: “There seems to be a reference to the scandal that recently plagued the Mexican team who allegedly partied with several women before the beginning of the tournament,” Portuguese newspaper Eco reported.

The two teams could even make it to the World Cup Final. Both teams have made it the “knock-out” phase, and who knows, Mexico could beat Brasil, and make it all the way to final match against… Portugal perhaps!

In 2000, Simpsons writer Dan Greaney folded in the notion of Donald Trump as President of the United States into a grimly dystopian episode called Bart to the Future. (Photo: Yahoo)
