The moment has finally arrived. Four years since Italy beat France to lift the World Cup in Germany, we now have another great final in prospect to look forward to in Spain Vs Holland. We have some of your Twitter predictions to share with you now, including a prediction from a very famous Octopus.

Paul the Octopus as he is now known, has become a cult hero around the world, after ‘correctly’ predicting World Cup results throughout the tournament. It appears that he was right yesterday too, since he correctly predicted that his home country Germany would defeat Uruguay and claim third place.

You’ll be interested to know that the Octopus has now gone on to tip Spain to lift the trophy later today, ahead of Holland – you can check out the prediction video here.
