'Psychic' octopus predicts Germany to win against England

Posted By: Staff

London, Jun 26 (ANI): A Psychic octopus, which has so far predicted all the German wins and defeats in this World Cup, has picked Germany as the winner against England in Sunday's knock out match, bringing bad news for Three Lions fans.

Paul, the octopus, has an uncanny knack of correctly predicting the winning side and picked Germany as the winner against Ghana in their last group game. It also picked Serbia to be victorious over Germany

Paul, who lives at Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany, but was born in England, chose the Germans as victors in Bloemfontein.

Two plastic boxes, with the flag of each country on the front had been lowered into his tank. Each contained food inside. The box that Paul opens first is judged to be the predicted winner of the game, and this time he picked Germany.

He has a 100 percent success rate for Germany so far in this World Cup competition, SKY News reports.

"I'm very glad he chose the right one. He really strictly marched onto the Germany box and put himself inside. He was 100 percent sure this time," said Daniel Fey, a spokesman from Sea Life in Oberhausen.

"Maybe he was ashamed of picking Germany and that is why he put the top of the box down when he was inside," the spokesman added. (ANI)
