World Cup fever is well and truly in the air with under a week to go until kick-off in Brazil and as is tradition ahead of the stellar soccer event, animal match predictions are off and running.
One German television show put their faith in an elephant as they sought to predict the future but unfortunately for them the animal had some bad news.
As the video shows, the elephant was given the option of two goals in which to kick a soccer ball - each representing a different nation.
And the United States will be most happy with the outcome as she worked her way through the Group D fixtures.
The elephant gave the USA the nod in their fixture against Germany courtesy of a sweet right footed strike.
US head coach, and former German international, Jurgen Klinsmann clearly disagrees with his big eared compatriot however:
"“We cannot win the World Cup because we are not at that level yet,” Klinsmann told the New York Times.
“For us, we have to play the game of our lives seven times to win the tournament.”
Rumors circulating that the elephant has been called in to replace Klinsmann are yet to be confirmed.
