Psychic octopus picks Germany over Argentina

Sapa-dpa | 29 June, 2010 14:150 Comments

German football fans have another reason to hope ahead of their team's World Cup quarter-final showdown with Argentina as Paul the octopus has tipped Germany to win.

"Extremely tight - but luckily a win for Germany in the end," said those in charge of the octopus tank at Aquarium Sea Life in Oberhausen.

The handlers of the psychic octopus baited glass cubes with mussels marked with both Germany and Argentina. The mussel Paul first chooses is viewed by the handlers as its prediction for the up-coming game.

Paul headed directly to the German side but waited a long before finally grabbing at it - more than an hour later.

For those sceptical of Paul's accuracy, he has been right four out of four times so far, picking Germany to beat Australia, Ghana and England as well as Germany's loss to Serbia.
