- Gary Neville predicted the way the 2018 World Cup would go
- The former England right-back incredibly got all four semi-finalists correct
- He reckons the Three Lions will lift the trophy after a grueling final clash against Belgium
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has generated a buzz online after revealing his incredible 2018 World Cup predictions that he made on June 29 that have since come to pass.
Neville took to his Twitter handle on Monday, July 9, to share a screenshot of the predictions he made on Instagram with the caption 'Never been good at predictions but this wasn’t bad !'
After the group stages of the competition, the former England international laid out how he felt the knockout stages would play out in Russia and he surprisingly got everything correct., including the semi-final match-ups.
Neville predicted semi-final meetings between Croatia and England slated for Wednesday, July 11, and Tuesday night's crunchy tie between France and Belgium.
Interestingly, contrary to many football fans' expectations, Neville predicted Brazil's exit from the tournament in the quarter-finals stage.
The South American nation was bundled out of the tournament after losing 2-1 to Belgium on Friday, July 6.
The only predictions that Neville has gotten wrong thus far are Portugal to beat Uruguay, Switzerland to overcome Sweden and Spain advancing against hosts Russia in their round-of-16 fixtures.
The football pundit fancies a final clash involving Belgium and England, with the Three Lions overcoming the Red Devils to lift the evasive trophy for the second time in history.
However, the two nations must overcome France and Croatia to advance to the last stage of the competition.
Neville has since sent a fiery warning to England ahead of their semi-final clash against Croatia in Moscow.
"I think both teams look confident, Croatia have played two very difficult games against Denmark and Russia.
"You're trying to nullify the midfield all the time against Croatia, where they've got Rakitic and Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic when he comes on.
"England with Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli do leave more space, because they're attacking players so they vacate the area of midfield.
"The Danes and the Russians never vacated midfield, England do.
"It's a strength of England but it could potentially give Croatia more space with could potentially make for a really good game," The Sun UK quoted Neville.
