Nostradamus predicts Spain as the winner of World Cup 2006

The world will be celebrating the end of the FIFA World Cup 2006 championship on July 9. Football fans all over the world make their own verbal and financial predictions of the winner. Forecasts from football specialists and sports analysts are not enough for many die-hard fans of the most popular game in the world. Many of them go to fortune-tellers and astrologers. Spanish journalists managed to find a prediction about the outcome of the World Cup 2006 made by world-known foreteller Nostradamus in 1555. They believe that the Spanish team will be the winner of the championship this year.

Nostradamus wrote that the Spanish king and his army will cross over the Pyrenees at the end of the sixth month of the sixth year. The king will win the battle with Beelzebub on the fields of Central Europe, and the army will return the Holy Grail to Spain. The journalists interpreted the prediction in the following way. “The Spanish king and his army” is the national Spanish football team and its coach Luis Aragones. “The fields of Central Europe” are the football stadiums in Germany, and “the Holy Grail” is the World Cup, of course.

It goes without saying that such a discovery has given a lot of hope to Spanish fans. Traditional specialists of football, however, are not so optimistic about Spain’s victory in the championship. The Spanish team has never made it even in the semi-final throughout the history of football. The Spaniards have been quite successful in Germany so far: they have played two matches for the time being and won both of them (4:0 vs. Ukraine and 3:1 vs. Tunisia).

The majority of specialists predict Brazil’s victory in the World Cup 2006. The Brazilian team will most likely play France in the final match of the current championship. Spanish, Argentine, Italian and German teams do not have many chances to win, not to mention other teams.

Nostradamus could be wrong with his prediction because football is an unpredictable game. It is enough to recollect the surprising third place which the Korean team took at the World Cup 2002 or the triumph of the Greek squad during Euro-2004.
