Nigerian fans can now start anticipating a successful outing for the Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia as the psychic pig named Mystic Marcus that predicted United States of America president Donald Trump’s victory has picked Nigeria and Argentina to make to the semi-finals, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The other two semi-finalists he picked are Belgium and Uruguay.
Mystic Marcus, according to a report in the Daily Mail, has a history of sniffing out winners – and is hoping to continue his unbroken record for this summer’s World Cup.
His owner, Juliette Stevens, stated that he has a 100 per cent track record of predicting sports results.
The black micro pig had previously guessed the winner of the 2014 World Cup and the Wimbledon tennis finals by picking apples.
And the eight-year-old psuchic even predicted Brexit and that Trump would shock America and win the US presidential election.
Now Mystic Marcus is putting his skills to the test once more by forecasting the semi-finalists for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
“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,”Juliette who is a farmer and micro pig breeder told the Daily mail.
“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.
“They used apples and oranges and Marcus predicted the football results, it was amazing.”
