Eric Cantona was arguably the best French player prior to the 1996 European Championship, but he was overlooked due to indiscipline
Cantona is emerging as a numerologist because he believes the numbers 2018 and 1966 are favour of England and here is how he explained the coincidence.
The man who is adored by the English for his contribution to Manchester United illustrated that the last time England won the Mundial was 1966 so he squared all the numbers in 1966 and multiplied them
: 1 *9 *6*6= 104, 976
He divided the 104, 976 by the number of years they last won which is 52
Hence, 104, 976/52 = 2018.7692
He elaborated saying that this year is 2018, so it tallies with the final results, whereas the ‘7’ after the point represents July.
He added the ‘6’ and ‘9’ to get ‘15’ which is the date for the final and the last number which is ‘2’ stands for England’s second title
France have already booked a place in the final and they are awaiting the winning semi-finalists of the game between England and Croatia on Wednesday.
