Dubai-based bird of prey has taken it upon herself to predict all 64 of the matches in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. But how will Nigeria fare?
Nigeria’s new kit might be all the rage in the build-up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but the Super Eagles aren’t the only bird of prey to be making a name for themselves. UAE-based radio station Dubai Eye 103.8 has recruited Farah the Falcon, a two-year-old female Saker, to predict every single one of the 64 matches held in Russia between June 14 to July 15, 2018.
After Paul the Octopus became a global sensation in 2010, a raft of psychic animals have tried their luck at picking World Cup winners, but Farah’s predatory instinct and unblinking gaze over the fixture list is sure to stand her in good stead in 2018. But Nigeria fans may not agree with her selections in what is sure to be a closely fought D!
Shot at the stunning desert location of the Al Maha resort, Farah has sized up Nigeria’s ‘Group of Death’ and made her predictions. Clashing with Argentina in Lionel Messi’s last World Cup, a talented Croatia team and Iceland’s Euro 2016 heroes will ensure progress is anything but smooth for the Eagles. But can they prove this impertinent falcon wrong? Enjoy…
