Here’s a funny story for you. EA has predicted the results of the World Cup Qualifier that will be happening on September 10th in Columbus, Ohio with the football engine that FIFA 14 utilizes. According to EA’s predictions, Mexico will tie the game at 1-1 in the second half with a follow-up to the U.S.’s first score. Quick to follow was a return score by Jozy Altidoire winning the game 2-1 for the U.S.
Here are the FIFA 14 simulator game details for the World Cup Qualifier:
After a 0-0 stalemate in the early stages of the first half, U.S. captain Clint Dempsey gave the home team the lead in the 36th minute by blasting a goal past Mexican goalkeeper José de Jesús Corona. Coming out of the break, the Mexicans rallied hard and at the 71st minute, Gerado Torrado found a streaking Giovani Dos Santos who buried a shot past U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard to tie the game. Nearing the end of a back-and-forth second half filled with chances from both sides, Altidore smashed a game-winning shot to the near post past a helpless Corona to earn a 2-1 win for the United States.
36’ – Clint Dempsey (Michael Bradley Assist)
71’ – Giovani Dos Santos (Gerardo Torrado Assist)
83’ – Jozy Altidore (Landon Donovan Assist)
Very interesting but I still can’t help but laugh. At the same time, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that the predictions were extremely close to the real thing if not the final result. What do you think? Are you ready to place your bets? FIFA 14 will release in North America on September 24 and worldwide on September 27 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC and will also be available for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later on.
