Elephant predicts World Cup champ

Posted: Updated:
GERMANY - An elephant at a German wildlife park is making her picks for this year's World Cup.

After predicting 30 of 33 results correctly from the Women's World Cup in 2006, the Men's World Cup in 2010 and the Men's European Championships in 2012, Nelly the elephant, has been viewed as something of an oracle.

With the opening match of the tournament about a week away, Nelly the elephant is making some serious predicting.

She predicted Germany would advance to the next round by beating Ghana and the United States, and then tying with Portugal.
