In fact, Paul has already known the result. The now world-famous “psychic” is just an octopus, which lives in an aquarium in western Germany and has correctly predicted every result in Germany’s 2010 FIFA World Cup games including Wednesday’s loss, which is a repeat, down to the final score, of the 2008 European Championship final when Spain beat Germany to win its first major title in 44 years.
Germany coach Joachim Loew kept on his lucky blue sweater for the semi-final in the semifinal but its magic failed to counter the prophecy of the mystic mollusk, which makes his prediction by picking food from containers marked with the flags of the two teams.

Jul 6 – The oracle octopus Paul goes on with his world Cup forecasts and opted for Spain over Germany in the semifinal.

A new winner of soccer’s biggest prize will be awarded on Sunday. Let us look forward to one more big goal, one more big game.
