If Paul the oracle octopus’ prediction was true, by picking the box marked with the flag of the national football team in an upcoming match, then it would be Spain winning against Netherlands on Sunday (July 12, 2010 – 2:30 a.m Philippine Time).
But wait, a Parakeet from Singapore is challenging the ability of the octopus to predict the future game. Like Paul, Mani became popular after predicting the winners of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. It picks Netherlands over Spain.
So which animal will emerge as the real psychic of soccer? Take your pick! 😀
