The soothsayer has predicted Spain will beat Holland in the World Cup final...
Oberhausen's famous prophet didn't waste any time to make his decision and quickly chose to consume a mussel from a glass tank with a Spanish flag rather than one from a similar tank marked with a Dutch flag.
Paul's decision may at first be devastating for Netherlands fans; the octopus has successfully predicted each of Germany's results at the 2010 World Cup, and in his life, has been wrong only once.
However, there remains hope for Oranje: Paul once before made a mistake in predicting a final and has a reputation of being a big game bottler. At Euro 2008, the vizier chose Germany to beat Spain in the final, but in that competition, Spain prevailed.
