A psychic pig named Mystic Marcus has predicted that the Super Eagles of Nigeria will make the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The pig, who has never predicted a wrong result according to owner Juliette Stevens, makes his predictions by selecting apples.

The black micro pig selected Belgium, Argentina and Uruguay as the other semi finalists for the tournament, which starts tomorrow.

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.

Go Nigeria!
