FIFA 23 predicts the winner of the upcoming World Cup competition, and fans are buzzing to see if lightning will strike again for EA.
The last three men’s World World Cup Cup winners, France(2018), Germany(2014), and Spain (2010), were correctly predicted by EA’s World Cup simulation so they may be on to something.
Who Will Win the World Cup
According to the FIFA 23 video game from EA Sports, Argentina will win Qatar’s 2022 FIFA World Cup this winter, making the Albiceleste World Cup winners for the third time in their history, ending a 36-year wait for victory. Brazil and France come second and third respectively.
In the simulation, Argentina beat Brazil by one goal in the final game, thanks to a goal from Lionel Messi. There is no way of knowing if this is actually going to happen, but for both of these two teams to get to the final and then for Argentina to get their first World Cup since 1986, in what could be Messi’s last tournament, it would be a pretty special occasion.

Portugal is expected to complete the World Cup in fourth place thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo, who will score three goals in seven games. Whilst Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann of France will also score three goals in Qatar respectively.
