EA's World Cup not too different

We might not fancy the game much, but it seems to be predicting things quite favourably

In search of further promotion for its already-chart-topping footy title, 2002 FIFA World Cup, EA Sports has simulated the competition, game for game, with the in-depth results available on its website. If you're interested, so far of the 19 matches that have taken place - the 20th, France-Uruguay, is currently at 67 minutes - EA's World Cup game has accurately predicted the scores of six, and overall outcome of ten. If the group results are anything to go by, both the Republic of Ireland and England will be celebrating, and the Italians - one of the cup favourites - will beat Brazil 2-0 in the final.
