Elephant v polar bear: German zoo animals predict fate of ‘die Mannschaft’ in Russia

Zella the elephant predicted that ‘die Mannschaft’ would be knocked out of the soccer World Cup in the early rounds. By picking a ball out of a basket with her trunk, Zella predicted two draws in Germany’s opening matches followed by defeat against South Korea. But Stuttgart zoo director Thomas Koelpin had reassuring words, saying that her predictions for the European championship were much more successful in the later rounds. If that’s true, World Cup fans can expect a shock result, with Senegal to be crowned champion. Optimistic German fans might prefer to listen to Nanook the baby polar bear, who lives in the western German city of Gelsenkirchen. She showed a preference for a cardboard box full of fish marked with the German flag. Germany face Mexico in their opening match on Sunday, followed by Sweden on Saturday, June 23 and South Korea on Wednesday, June 27.
