The Simpsons have become a huge part of pop culture not only because its the longest-running American sitcom or because '90s kids grew up with the beloved cartoon family but also because they're pretty good at making future predictions.
Throughout their 29 seasons, the show has predicted many things such as smartwatches, video phone calls, and most recently, Donald Trump becoming president of the United States. That's why the internet now firmly believes that the show also predicted which two national teams will make it to the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.
According to Twitter Moments, "in the 1997 episode The Cartridge Family, Mexico and Portugal battled it out in a final 'to determine which nation is the greatest on Earth,'" making soccer aficionados believe that Mexico and Portugal will go head-to-head for this year's trophy in Russia.
