Paul The Octopus Picks Spain As Winner Of 2010 World Cup Final

By Angel on Friday, 9th July 2010

Paul the octopus, the German eight-legged creature that has skyrocketed to fame during the World Cup 2010 finals after correctly predicting all of Germany’s matches so far, has picked Spain as the winners of the final against the Netherlands on Sunday. The world famous octopus also selected Germany as the winners of the third place play-off against Uruguay that will be played on Saturday.

So far, Paul has been correct in all its six predictions involving Germany. Based in Deutschland, this is the first time the mollusk during the tournament that it has been asked to select the winners of a game not involving its home country. During the Euro 2008 finals, Paul was correct in five of six Germany games but now boasts a perfect record going into the last two games of the tournament in South Africa.

This morning in the Sea Life Oberhausen Acquarium in Germany, the English-born octopus had to go through its task and was first asked to call upon its psychic powers over the third place play-off. Not surprisingly, Paul gobbled up the mussel in the tank with Germany colours and will be aiming to retain its perfect record for its adopted homeland.

The final featuring Spain and Holland was next and after much anticipation, Paul plumped all its eight tentacles for the Spanish. The news would excite Spanish fans mainly due to the octopus’ stellar results so far, and expect the odds for a Spain win to be slashed heavily by bookmakers. However, given that it has never before been asked to predict a game that does not feature the Germans, there might always be a first time for a loss.
