As the world cup ticks off today, good news seems to be coming from uncommon quarters for the Nigerian contingent to Russia.
The psychic pig, Mystic Marcus, that predicted President Donald Trump’s victory in the United States has shocked the world by picking Nigeria and Argentina as two countries that would make it to semi-finals in the 2018 World Cup.
The psychic pig has a history of sniffing out a winner – and is hoping to continue its unbroken record this summer’s World Cup, thesportsbay.com reports.
Mystic Marcus has a 100 per cent track record of predicting sports results according to its owner Juliette Stevens.
The black micro pig has previously guessed the winner of the 2014 World Cup and the Wimbledon tennis finals by picking apples.
With bad news for England fans, Mystic Marcus expects Belgium, Argentina, Nigeria and Uruguay to make it through to the round of eight.
Farmer and micro pig breeder Juliette from Heage, Derbyshire, said: ‘Marcus is the seventh child of a seventh child and apparently they’re gifted with special powers so maybe that’s where it comes from.
‘A few years ago I was invited on a radio show because of Paul the octopus predicting results and they wanted to see if I had any animals that had the ability.
‘I hadn’t tried the seventh child theory out so thought I’d give it a go,” Juliette said.
If Marcus the pig succeed, News Arena can also predict for free that its owner should be ready for politicians and religious marabouts from Nigeria who would be thronging the pig for sundry consultations.
