World Cup 2011 Women

Now FIFA's Women's championship games are going on in Germany. Yesterday there was a quarter-final match between the home team Germany and Japan, 120% away. Most of the people predicted that Germany would win; the best bet for the title. Of course I, being a supporter of Japan team hoped the opposite. And the result was Germany 0:1 Japan!

So did the Paul the Octopus Junior (maybe tentatively named) at Sea Life Center in Oberhausen, Germany. After the senior Paul went to the Sea-Heaven, the Center, hoping to find another 'prophet', is carrying a 'contest' participants being eight octopus including Paul the Octopus Junior. While seven other guys voted for Germany, but the Junior favoured Japan. the Junior genuine or not.

Best 4 are: Japan, Sweden, France and either Brazil and USA. Semi-Final games on 13 and the Final on 17. We will find out if Paul the Octopus Junior is entitled or not to succeed the great prophet of World Cup 2010.
