Believe it or not, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger actually knows a thing or two about football, and the 20-year Arsenal man proved he’s still smarter than the average fan by making a bold Euro 2016 prediction that turned out to be completely true.
Asked about the impact of star defender Hector Bellerin for then-unbeaten and unscored-on Spain, Wenger proposed that the reigning Euro champions should not overlook Croatia and said the eastern European side could shock Spain with their impressive collection of talents.

Wenger’s words proved true as Croatia shocked Spain, the Euros and much of the world by beating Spain 2-1 thanks to a go-ahead goal in the last few minutes. Croatia’s win allowed them to pip Spain for the top spot in Group D.
Could Arsene Wenger be Nostradamus in disguise? He certainly looks old enough…
