Marcel, is a small pig from the French town of Revest les Eaux, near Toulon. During the ongoing World Cup games, the pig has been following events in Russia, predicting the outcome of the various matches.
Using his nose, the little pet pushes the ball towards his favorite country’s flag to win.
MARCEL THE PIG AT WORK PREDICTING
When it comes to France’s match against Uruguay on Friday, Marcel chose like a true patriot and forecast that the ‘Les Bleus’ his home country will beat their opponents.
He also predicted that England would advance to the semifinals as the Three Lions play Sweden on Saturday.
Magalie, the happy owner of Marcel tells how his piglet has come to predict the matches of the World Cup in Russia: “My children are thoroughly fond of football, they started playing ball with Marcel…”
Then they had an idea for a game.
“We took out photocopies of the flags, a flag on each side and the ball in the middle, Marcel then pushes the ball towards one of the two teams.”
