Oracle camel's World Cup prediction goes wrong

Dubai, June 17 (IANS/EFE): Like Paul the Octopus in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Shaheen the Arabian camel has become famous for predicting the results of the ongoing 2014 edition in Brazil.

Shaheen has hit the correct spot so far by predicting the results of several games such as victories for Brazil, Netherlands, Italy and Argentina, reports EFE.

However, its prediction of Portugal defeating Germany went off target as the Germans crushed Portugal 4-0 Monday.

Sitting on desert sand, Shaheen is made to choose from the flags of competing nations placed in front of it with a football in between and conveniently picks the winner with its teeth.
