    The mystic mollusc confirmed his flawless accuracy after Spain lifted the trophy, beating Holland 1-0.

    Paul has become Englandís only hero of the tournament after accurately foretelling the result of all six matches involving Germany.


    The Dorset-born soothsayer also won privileged status in Spain after he predicted that its footballers would defeat the Dutch at Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday night.

    Even the Spanish Prime Minsiter Jose Luiz Rodriguez Zapatero expressed his affection for the creature after his prediction was announced on Friday.

    "I am concerned for the octopus. I am thinking of sending him a protective team," Zapatero said.

    Elena Espinosa, the Spanish environment and fisheries minister also swore to protect Paul.

    "On Monday, I shall be at the European Council of Ministers and I shall be asking for a [fishing] ban on Paul the octopus so the Germans do not eat him," Espinosa said.

    Paulís call looked to be in doubt as the game was still goalless after 90 minutes and there was still no clear winner with only four minutes of extra time remaining. ...

    Best thing about Spain winning the World Cup? We don't have to hear anything about the bore fest known as the World Cup for the next 4 years.

    Those horns are a South African craze. The athletes wanted them banned because it interfered with their concentration...and I'd imagine they would.

    Next WorldCup in Brazil will probably have flashers instead...
