Supercomputer makes World Cup prediction

A supercomputer from BonusCodeBets has now predicted that France will outwit England to reach the semis and set up a mouthwatering clash against Portugal, who have been backed to see off Morocco.

In the other quarter-final fixtures, Argentina are tipped to eliminate Louis van Gaal's charges, with Brazil getting the better of Croatia.
