The performance of the Super Eagles now stands between the prediction of a psychic pig called Mystic Marcus and the reality at present.
The pig predicted that the Super Eagles of Nigeria will make it to the semi-finals of the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia but many of the football fans have refused to agree.
Nigeria will be playing her first match against Croatia on Saturday and judging by the team dismal performances in the pre-world cup friendlies, many have written the Super Eagles off.
The Croatia match will test the pig’s power of prediction and of course the natural strength of the three-time African champions.
The pig also picked Argentina, Belgium and Uruguay to make the cut for the last-four.
According to the owner, Juliette Stevens, Mystic Marcus has a 100% track record of predicting sports outcomes.
The micro pig had predicted the winner of the last edition of the competition as well as the Wimbledon tennis finals by picking apples.
“Marcus is the seventh child of a seventh child and apparently they’re gifted with special powers so maybe that’s where it comes from,” Juliette, a farmer and micro pig breeder told the Daily mail.
