Paul the octopus strikes again

Paul predicted Germany would lose to Spain in last night's semi-final match, and they did.

Carles Puyol's header in the 73rd minute off a corner will see Spain in their first World Cup final after an impressive 1-0 win over Germany in Durban.

Paul now has a perfect record in the FIFA tournament, this year he correctly chose the winner in each of Germany's six matches.

I'm still not sure whether the octopus has magical powers, is very lucky or if there is some food-tampering going on, but the whole fiasco brings some light and fluffiness to the game.

Spain will play the Netherlands in the 2010 final on Sunday, the 11th of July.
