The Simpsons have made a number of eerie predictions throughout its 29-year run that have happened to come true.

The Simpsons' uncanny knack for guessing world news doesn't stop there, either, it also had story lines featuring the horse-meat scandal and the Ebola outbreak.

They nearly predicted the events surrounding 9/11.

The moment has been pulled up by fans following The Simpsons' recent strong track record with predicting real-life events, including Disney's takeover of 20th Century Fox and the election of Donald Trump as US President.

The year of the world Cup is not specified, but in a series of 1997 States that in the opening round Mexico abigale Germany 1:0 and this was the case for the 2018 world Cup, which takes place in Russian Federation these days. "Ronaldo missed the penalty so we could end in second place and fulfil the Simpsons" prediction'.

Mavericks decline Dirk Nowitzki's option, plan to re-sign
Obviously, a starting lineup of Jordan, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant , Klay Thompson and Draymond Green would be flat-out ridiculous. Golden State, though, is expected to have serious competition from the Mavericks for Jordan's services this time around.

In that fictional match (which ended in a riot), Mexico and Portugal battled it out to "determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on earth".

Mexico and Portugal fans are starting to wonder if they are destined to reach the World Cup final in Russian Federation - because of a Simpsons episode from 1997.

Portuguese newspaper Eco reported: 'Although there is no clear indication of what year the match takes place in, one detail has led viewers to believe that it's the 2018 World Cup final. A draw against Sweden on Wednesday would mean they finish top of Group F and could not meet Portugal until the final.

So while Portugal and Mexico could still meet in the semi-final, but a final clash between the two is now impossible.
