Peppa Pig predicted Crystal Palace player Christian Benteke's goal against Chelsea on Saturday!

Ok, so we're not HUGE football followers here at Closer Online - as you will probably have guessed.

But when Peppa Pig is suddenly involved, we do NOT shy away.

Do you remember how The Simpsons have predicted basically everything since it began? Most famously, when it predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidency? Back then, it was all a bit of a joke, but now look...


It turns out that people are now saying our dear old pal Peppa Pig is having a go at predicting the future too.

We're not going to pretend we know much about football, but apparently, in a game between Crystal Palace and sure-fire winners Chelsea, Palace player Benteke scored an AMAZING goal and won the game. Which is VERY surprising and fantastic.

(Sorry to any football fans reading this, we don't wish to offend with our ignorance...)

And now fans have found a Peppa Pig episode which is an EXACT REPLICA of Saturday's game.

Sort of.

In an episode where all of Peppa's friends are in the park playing footie, little Richard Rabbit goes up against Pedro Pony, who is in goal, and scores an absolute corker.

We feel sure that Richard's goal against Pedro will go down in footballing history alongside Benteke's.

Here's the actual goal.
