Famous German octopus predicts Argentina exit

An octopus in Germany who has shot to fame for correctly predicting the result of all of the country`s World Cup matches so far on Tuesday forecast a win over Argentina in the quarter-finals.



Oberhausen: An octopus in Germany
who has shot to fame for correctly predicting the result of
all of the country`s World Cup matches so far on Tuesday forecast a
win over Argentina in the quarter-finals.

Two plastic boxes containing tasty morsels, one with a
Germany flag and one with an Argentina flag, were lowered into
the tank that houses Paul the octopus at his home in Sea Life
in Oberhausen, western Germany.

Watched by a scrum of photographers, Paul plumped for
Diego Maradona`s all-stars crashing out to Joachim Loew`s side
in Saturday`s eagerly anticipated encounter.

Earlier in the tournament, the eight-legged oracle
correctly tipped Germany to beat Ghana and Australia in their
group D matches and was also right to predict they would lose
to Serbia.

And even though he was born in England, he also
treacherously but correctly foretold Germany`s win over his
native country in their last-16 clash on Sunday.
