EA Sports is on the rise when it comes to providing correct predictions for the men’s championships with their FIFA matches World Championship Winners, with a flawless streak spanning four tournaments.
And it’s worth noting that EA Sports also came to this conclusion as part of its simulations of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar Lionel Messi would end up winning the Golden Ball for Outstanding Player of the Tournament. Messi was also expected to win the Golden Boot but had to settle for second place after finishing a goal behind France’s goal Kylian Mbappe in the final classification.
So with that Women’s World Cup 2023 Set to start in Australia and New Zealand next month, EA Sports used FIFA 23 to tell us who will clearly be lifting the trophy.
With the game’s tournament updates including a detailed database and recalibrated player ratings available to users by the end of June, EA Sports has been running the entire competition – all 64 games, from the group stage to the grand final in Sydney – in order to determine the overall winner.

In the simulation, three forwards also led the USWNT scorer list Alex Morgan, Spain‘S Alexia Putellas And Germany‘S Alexandra Popp finished the level with six goals each. But Putellas won the Golden Boot after providing more assists.
Now I’ve listed EA Sports’ recent success when it comes to determining the men’s standings World Championship For winners, the finer details of their sim-based predictions can be a little less reliable.
Prominent examples of failed prophecies are support Brazil to reach the final of their 2014 home World Cup. (Actually the Selecao were eliminated in the semifinals after being humiliated 7-1 by the eventual winner Germany.)
Also in 2014, EA Sports named this defending champion Spain would finish with a bronze medal after winning Cristiano Ronaldo And Portugal in the match for third place. (But none of the Iberian rivals managed to get out of their respective groups.)
Perhaps it’s asking too much for a video game to be able to replicate the ins and outs of a real football competition with 100% accuracy, but with the first sim-based prediction of the Women’s World Cup now official, the pressure is on.
