THE scientists have spoken.

It’s official, Spain will win the Brazil World Cup.

Boffins at universities in Germany have predicted the outcome of every game in the tournament.

They have used several methods, taking into account FIFA rankings, historical performances and respective playing strengths.

And they can now reveal that La Roja will be triumphant, seeing off the Germans in the final.

Should Gibraltar look for overseas footballers to boost the national team?

According to the study, the youthful England squad will top their tricky group before beating Ivory Coast in the round of the last 16.

But, somewhat predictably, the Three Lions will be wiping away tears in the quarter final once more, as they are beaten by eventual champions Spain.

The defending champions will then see off host nation Brazil in a dramatic semi-final, en route to victory.

The tournament kicks off today, with Brazil taking on Croatia in Sao Paulo. Spain versus the Netherlands – a repeat of the 2010 final – takes place on Friday evening.

And then Saturday at midnight, England and Italy will do battle in the searing heat of the Amazon jungle, in Manaus.


  1. Hard to believe England can top their group! But if they can make it into next round, there’s a small chance. Any number of countries could win it this time – Brazil, Italy, spain, Germany, Argentina, Chile… and maybe Belgium as a dark horse?

  2. If (if) England make it out the group, then they will be rewarded with a relatively easy last 16 tie, against either Ivory Coast, Colombia, Japan or Greece. Out on penalties in the quarter final I reckon..
    Everyone thinks Belgium are dark horses.. so how can they be!

  3. Even though spain has lost its first game, it seems that it will rise up again to win trophy because the coach Vincent del Piero is mastermind and has vast understanding. But facing Netherlands again in upcoming rounds may trouble Spain as they have found the loophole in Spanish team. English team may not make if they have to face Germany or Spain in another round.
