Croatia vs. Nigeria: Siri Thinks the Match Won’t Favor Nigeria.

With barely an hour left to the most anticipated match of the day, at least for Nigerians, I took to Google’s Assistant and Apple’s Siri to see their predictions for today’s match.

Unfortunately, Google’s Assistant couldn’t predict anything and when I asked about its thoughts on who will win the tournament, it replies:

“With so many matches to watch, anyone who likes football is the real winner.”

Really, Google!

However, Siri did better— to an extent.

According to her sources, the odds favor Croatia by 0.8 goals.

 

What is 0.8 goal, Siri?

Wait! Does this mean Croatia might score a goal against Nigeria, but it won’t be counted?

Until 8 pm before we’d find out! But at least we know Siri is more of a Football fan than Google’s Assistant.

    I think is now clear to us, we lacked the required strategy to do the job of winning and not that we can’t.
