The eight-armed football star will be remembered for his prediction of the eight winnings during the 2010 World Cup matches as well as the the final prediction of Spain winnings over Netherlands. Paul made his prediction by opening the lid of one of the two boxes, each containing a treat and the flags of the two competing teams. Paul won the hearts of all football fans after he had correctly predicted eight wins in a row.
Sadly, our friend Paul the octopus won’t be giving any more tentacles predictions in the World Cup series.
