EA predicts that the winner of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will be Argentina

EA claims Argentina will be the champion of this year's World Cup final in Qatar.


With less than two weeks to go before the beginning of the 2022 FIFA World Cup that will take place in Qatar, video game company EA has predicted that Argentina will lift the trophy at the end of the tournament.

EA Sports arrived at this conclusion through its HyperMotion2 Technology and the dedicated FIFA World Cup 2022 ratings in FIFA World Cup Kick-Off and Tournament modes to simulate all 64 matches and arrive at the predicted winner come December 18, 2022.

EA predicts Argentina will beat Brazil in the final with a narrow 1-0 win.

Based on the results from the simulation, Argentina and Brazil, the two favorites in the competition, will face each other in the final. Victorious in the semi-final match against France, Argentina will go on to win the final 1-0 in a low-scoring affair.

For a country whose last World Cup title came back in 1986, many fans will be encouraged to hear this news. Though some fans might be quick to dismiss such a prediction, they should know that EA accurately predicted that Spain would win their first World Cup trophy in 2010, Germany in 2014, and France in the last World Cup held in 2018.

Furthermore, EA has predicted that Argentinian talisman Lionel Messi will claim the Golden Boot for his eight goals across seven games played and also receive the Golden Ball award for his impressive performances throughout the competition. The Golden Glove award will see a four-way tie between Croatia's Dominik Livakovic, Brazil's Alisson, Portugal's Rui Patricio, and Argentina's Emiliano Martinez, with the latter winning the award for progressing the furthest in the competition.

Lionel Messi's 2014 World Cup final disappointment will not repeat itself.

English fans who intend on travelling to Qatar with high hopes of seeing their national team win the trophy for the first time since 1966 will be disappointed to learn that EA predicts England will be eliminated by the Netherlands in the Round of 16 with a 3-1 loss. Similarly, the United States will see its run in the tournament come to an end at the hands of a 1-0 loss to France in the quarter-finals.

On May 10, 2022, Electronic Arts announced its 30-year partnership with FIFA would finally end on July 12, 2023, with FIFA 23 being the last game in the FIFA series. As such, this marks the final World Cup prediction made by EA in the three-decade FIFA series.
