Octopus Paul: Germany will win 3rd place
Berlin: Octopus oracle Paul is predicting Germany will win over Uruguay at the World Cup in the fight for third place.
Paul`s pick was carried live Friday on TV stations around Europe. The world-famous octopus could be seen choosing a mussel from a glass tank marked with a German flag, after sitting on the Uruguayan tank for a few minutes — indicating a German victory in Saturday`s fight for places three and four in the World Cup.
Since predicting Spain`s victory over Germany, the mollusk has become less popular at home, while Spaniards have offered their newfound mascot protection.
Paul correctly predicted Germany`s wins over Argentina, England, Australia and Ghana and the country`s loss to Serbia.
