The Simpsons' writers have a habit of predicting big world news stories years before they happen.
They 'predicted' Trump's presidency:
And some even reckon they predicted the 9/11 attacks
Now, fans have honed in on a clip from 1997, wondering if it could actually predict the 2018 World Cup Final.

The Simpsons which is a cartoon show that accurately and creepily predicted 9/11's awful events and Trump's presidency has predicted that Mexico and Portugal would headline the 2018 World Cup final.
