Animal Pundits Split Decision On World Cup Winner, Game Sims Plumps For Oranje Victory

It's been quite an eventful World Cup in South Africa. We have had the whole works. Vuvuzelas, fans missing games due to airport congestion, Larissa Riquelme with her strategic mobile phone placement, an oracle octopus with 100% prediction, French mutiny and Bobbi Eden offering oral sex if the Netherlands win the Word Cup. And the football ain't half bad either.

As for Paul the octopus, he has attain worldwide status with his intensely accurate prediction about Germany's match results. He has now stepped out of his comfort zone and predicted that Spain will win the World Cup final. Paul also went back to Germany to triumph over Uruguay for third place.

As far as animal pundit goes, in Singapore Mani the Psychic Parakeet predicts a Dutch victory. So for two top quality teams, the animal pundits are unable to unanimously agree on a victor.

However, Imagine Games Network (IGN) simulated the upcoming Spain v. Netherlands World Cup Final and their prediction is a Dutch win after an extremely tense penalty sudden death shoot-out. Gerard Pique disappoints Spain with an effort that is too close to the keeper.

The chaps at GameSpot have also simulated the Netherlands vs. Spain World Cup finals match to predict the outcome. Klass Jan Huntelaar scored a superb goal to turn Holland into first time World Cup winners.

There you have it. Animal pundits are split on the winner. Game simulations predict a Dutch victory, although the margin and manner of victory differed. Both simulated finals portrayed an excellent, exciting and high quality final which I believe will be the case.

There are interesting match-ups all round the pitch,
1. Sneijder, van der Vaart and Robben (former Real Madrid) against Capdevila, Ramos, Pique and Puyol
2. Gio van Bronckhorst and Mark van Bommel against Xavi and Iniesta (the former Barcelona connection)
3. Iker Casillas against Klass-Jan Huntelaar if he plays (the former Real Madrid connection)
4. David Villa against Wesley Sneijder for the Golden Boot honours

The two best teams are in the final, Oranjemen with six successive wins and La Furia Roja with the most clean sheets in the tournament (4). Look out for Torres to explode in the final!
