Welcome back to the most accurate World Cup predictor in the world. After beating out Nate Silver in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup, we fired up the prediction machine again for the 2015 Women’s World Cup.

And by "prediction machine," we mean "foosball tournament." We pinned flags on 48 people to represent the 24 teams and let them go at it. Then we wrote down the results.

That's science, people.
