THE original Mystic Meerkats at Drayton Manor Park and Zoo, are at it again and using their psychic powers to make the next predictions for the FIFA World Cup 2018!
So far the meerkats have successfully predicted the opening game for host nation, Russia, the first nail-biting England game this week, and the Russia vs Egypt game last night.
The cheeky meerkat mob have foreseen three points being awarded to Croatia as they scoop a win against Argentina during their match on Thursday 21st June. Will this prediction result in a 100% strike rate and four in a row for the Mystic Meerkats?
The mischievous creatures have also looked ahead to England’s second match on Sunday 24th June, predicting that England will add another win to their list by defeating Panama in Group G. If the meerkats continue their winning streak and have predicted correctly, fingers crossed this might be enough to see England shoot to the top of their group!
A sneaky meerkat has also joined in on the action, predicting a win for Uruguay against Russia, the host nation, on Monday 25th June.
Chris Mitchell, Head of Zoo Operations at Drayton Manor, said: “We’re very impressed with our meerkats so far as they continue with their impressive sporting predictions for the World Cup.
“We’ve put their intuitions to the test again for another set of matches and have given them even more animal enrichment to enjoy. It’s amazing to watch them dribble the ball full of mealworms into the winning team’s net and we can’t wait to see if they get the next two matches correct!”
