According to a report on the '20minutos' website, French medic and prophet Michel de Notredame (1503-1566), better known as Nostradamus, predicted that Spain will win the Germany 2006 World Cup finals.
The prophecy predicts that: "At the end of the sixth month of 2006, the King of Spain will cross the Pyrenees with his army. The legions of Beelzebub await the battle on the central European plains. Destruction and defeat will fall on the evil-doers. The Holy Grail will be returned to Spain by the triumphant King."
Having beaten Tunisia 3-1 and Ukraine 4-0, Spain are through to the last sixteen. Spain's final group game will be against Saudi Arabia at 4pm, this Friday, 23rd June (Canal Cuatro, La Sexta). Should they win the group, Spain could face France, who were held to a 1-1 draw by South Korea in their second game, having drawn against Switzerland last Tuesday. Switzerland beat Togo 2-0 and currently top the group on goal difference, tied on four points with South Korea, who beat Togo 1-0 in their opening game.
