A two year-old octopus Paul , the so-called octopus oracle predicts Germany's victory in their World Cup last 16 clash against England by choosing a mussel, from a glass box with the German flag instead of a glass box with the England flag, at the Sea Life Aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen June 25, 2010. Paul has so far rightly predicted Germany's first round victories over Ghana and Australia as well as Germany's defeat against Serbia.

Ledley King could be in line to make a dramatic return to the England line-up after recovering from a groin injury.
England coach Fabio Capello has to decide whether to stick with Matthew Upson at centre back or restore King or Jamie Carragher to the starting line-up. Wayne Rooney has recovered from the ankle knock he sustained against Slovenia.
Germany striker Cacau has been ruled out with a stomach muscle injury so Miroslav Klose, who is available again after suspension, will come back into the side.
Coach Joachim Loew has concerns over key midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger following the hamstring strain he picked up against Ghana. Jerome Boateng is troubled by a calf strain and could be replaced by Holger Badstuber.

Its the showpiece tie of the last 16, closely followed by Spain Vs Portugal, and its a rematch of many previous famous Germany-England battles. From 1966 to 1990 heartache in equal measure for both nations has been experienced but Fabio Capello will hope that his side continue their slow progression to good form when they take on Joachim Low’s in Bloemfontein.

Both sides have injury concerns to consider but Germany will come into the game having had a far better run in the group stages but all of that will count for nothing come Sunday afternoon.
