Where will this time’s World Cup winners come from

Who will it go to this time?

Only two continents have ever won the football World Cup: South America and Europe. Since 1962, the sequence has alternated. This table lists the World cup winners and the continent.

A historical perspective-might we see yellow again??


So, my prediction, some South American country. My choice – my eternal favourites Brazil (though their squad could have been much stronger).

This analysis falls into the same traps that most financial analysis probably fell- assuming that all swans are white because you haven’t seen a black swan.

    I guess you should also add another variable called host continent, you may get better correlation. My money is on Dutch.
