The mystic mollusc, who became famous worldwide after correctly predicting the results of all seven of Germany’s matches as well as the final, is being unveiled today as a new “ambassador” for the FA’s bid to host the World Cup after next.
Paul has “officially retired” from picking winning teams – by opening one of two underwater boxes bearing the rivals’ emblems in order to eat a mussel – but is appearing in a new video supporting England’s campaign.

Although he lives in the Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen, Germany, the clairvoyant cephalopod was hatched at an aquarium in Weymouth, Dorset, so the FA can claim he has merely chosen to support his home team.
However the decision is likely to prove unpopular in Spain, which is also bidding to hold FIFA’s 2018 tournament, given that “Pulpo Paul” became a national hero when he correctly tipped its team to triumph over the Netherlands in South Africa last month.
Nicola Hamilton, the manager at Weymouth Sea Life Centre, said: “Paul has spent the last two years of his life in Germany, but he is definitely a proud Englishman and is therefore delighted to put his support behind England 2018. We have had a number of football approaches from around the world but Paul was only ever going to choose his homeland.” (Telegraph)

May I suggest to Nicola Hamilton that Paul is most definitely not a proud Englishman, mainly because in order to be one he would at first have to be a ‘man’ and not an Octopus. As the manager of the Weymouth Sea Life Centre, I would expect her to know the difference. Anyway we digress.

This is indeed good news for England surely means that success is guaranteed. You may as well start booking your time off work now because so you can get your tickets for Paraguay Vs Costa Rica at Goodison Park now!
