Soccer: And the octopus picks ... Spain

The Netherlands can kiss their chances of World Cup victory goodbye.

The Dutch face Spain in the title decider at Soccer City in Johannesburg on Monday morning our time, but it appears they have little chance of winning, if Paul the psychic Octopus is to believed.

The eight legged tipster, given a choice between two glass cubes baited with mussels, has picked the one containing the Spanish flag for the final.

He has not put a tentacle wrong for the entire World Cup.

Paul has also picked Germany to beat Uruguay in the third place playoff.
