England victory predicted by seal who is ‘always correct’ ahead of Euros final

England's victory at the Euro 2020 final has been predicted by a seal who has correctly picked the winner of every game so far.

Banana, a three-year-old seal, has shocked her keepers by remarkably predicting every England win so far, including the semi-final game against Denmark.

And encouragingly she's indicated an England victory at Wembly on Sunday by flopping over towards the St George Cross rather than Italy's flag on Friday (July 9).

Keepers at The Cornish Seal Sanctuary began encouraging Banana to predict the winner in each of England’s matches by wiggling in the direction of one of the flags.

In the video, Banana is rapt with attention as she waits on the wet concrete opposite the flags.

Every single time, she bolts straight for the St George Cross even when it is swapped over to be on a different side.

To get her to "choose" a team, the keeper standing with the flags has a fish in each hand which he holds next to the opposing flags.

When Banana flops towards England, the crowds outside the enclosure burst into cheers.

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, in Gweek, is a charity and sanctuary for injured seal pups and is owned by The SEA LIFE Trust.

It also operates as a tourist attraction so people can visit and learn about baby seals.

This comes after a woman who says she is a psychic predicted that England will win Euro 2020 after reading the players' bums.

The tarot reader, who is dubbed the "UK’s first rumpologist" due to her professed ability to read rears, predicted England's victory over Denmark and raked in £359 at the bookies as a result.

Meanwhile, a shopkeeper is said to have "banned" Italian food from being sold in the shop ahead of the final on Sunday.

Frozen food like pizza and garlic bread were behind black and yellow tape.
