The octopus was right! But what about this 'chorizo'?

Time for a silly post and for a bit of fun.

I read some of you were angry with Paul, the octopus, who keeps predicting Germany's results and so far has had a 100% record (including guessing their shocking defeat to Serbia).

It's incredible how much publicity this octopus got. And here you can see him picking Germany for Saturday.

And here at Mundo Albiceleste we have to admit he was right! (sorry, I couldn't find a link in English).

So there you have it: Germany 3-1 Argentina.

But wait a minute...wait a minute...there is another character who can predict the future and he has other things in mind. He comes from the land of the 'asado'. He comes from the land of Diego.

I give you...'El chorizo vidente' ('the future-telling chorizo') and he's got his own personal prediction for Saturday.

Referee for the match against germany is Ravshan Irmatov- the uzbek refree from the opening match. 2 days is too long to wait!!!!

Vamos Argentina

Just want to say - the Germany defeat to Serbia was not a shock.

The Octopus is the most successful PR BS campaign that I've ever seen. Long live the idiotic internet, eh?

I just want Argentina to beat Germany somehow. Even if it is 0-0 and Argentina win on penalties, I'll be happy.

I don't care what happens after that. even if they lose 10-0 to Spain, I'll be happy.

For me this is the World Cup Final, somehow, please Dear God, help us defeat the Germans.

more germany, more please:

these stupid statements will make argentina even more determined.

in the last world cup both of our knock out stages went to extra time. Maradona is showing the winning mentality to kill the game early..

It's very very likely that the only change will be Walter Samuel for Burdisso. Di Maria and Maxi will keep their starting spots.

I hope it's for real!

Btw, guys... there is a very interesting poll here. Let's participate.

I select 4-3-3 with the EXACT formation that will be starting on saturday: Romero; Otamendi, Demichelis, Samuel, Heinze; Mascherano, Maxi, Di Maria; Messi, Tevez, and Higuain.

no matter da starting lines up is, but i'm sure that our teams will beat German, most of german player comes frm Bayern munich, look how they form n playing style frm champion league final this year again inter, they did nothing n were out of idea to break inter defence which was samuel n zanetti there plus milito outclassed they defench completely (remember Lahm was in that match too)
So u guys dun have to worry about they attacking of Close, Podolski n muller, they all not good enough to break our defence, i'm really sure about that, the only thing is depend on our strike force whether can score it or not,
What i really worry is how we gonna stop them on a setplay such as both side connerkick n freekick, we all know that they r good in high ball but our defence is weak in that point,
Thats just my openion, plz correct me if i wrong,
Vamos Argentina
We all fully support u guys here in Bangkok with heart,

Buds, Bangkok Thailand
