Spain will beat Germany in Wednesday's World Cup semi-finals, according to an octopus.The octopus oracle Paul is known for predicting the outcomes of soccer games by selecting a mussel from a glass tank.

For this game he chose the mussel in a tank marked with the Spanish flag and ignored the tank with German colors.

Paul has been wrong in the past when it came down to Germany and Spain. In 2008, he picked Germany to win the 2008 European Championship, but Spain won.
