Cat-astrophe for Argentina As Cat Predicts Nigeria’s Win
First, it was the Mystic Marcus and not it’s ‘prrrr’ Achilles the cat.
Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli has said he is ready for victory in the crucial Group D match against Nigeria, but an oracle cat’s prediction may give him some ‘paws’ for thought.
Achilles, the clairvoyant cat of St Petersburg Hermitage museum, cast his World Cup judgement on Tuesday (June 26) and picked Nigeria as his ordained winner hours before kick off.
The famous psychic cat, who has so far had 100 percent success in predicting winners of the games played in Russia’s second capital, did not hesitate when he chose to nibble on a bowl of cat food next to Nigeria’s flag.
Argentina go into the game bottom of the standings and knowing they have to win to have any hope of advancing to the knockout rounds.
But while the South American team may have a ‘Lion’ in Messi – this Russian cat is not ‘purrrsuaded’.
