Who will lift the Cup?

After England’s euphoric yet nailbiting win over Colombia (is it ever anything but?), we look at how the World Cup would pan out if we base it on house price growth. For the quarters: Belgium (who finished fourth in 1986) would easily beat five times champions Brazil, while Croatia would conquer tournament hosts Russia.

The other two games would be closer. Two times winner Uruguay would edge out 1998 winners France, while Sweden (runners-up in 1958) would get the better of England.

That sets up Uruguay to outshoot Belgium in the first semi-final and Sweden to overpower Croatia in semi-final two, while Croatia should beat Belgium in a tight third place playoff

The Final: Sweden would edge Uruguay in a final that could go all the way to penalties to lift their first ever World Cup trophy. It’s been a championship of shocks, so who knows, although we’re hoping our predictions may prove to be wrong? Come on England!
