Prediction and betting are big business in any sport, and it could lead to murder and deceit. But we find the latest hard to believe. This fan video posted on YouTube claims that Shaheen the Camel, who predicted FIFA World Cup 2014 match outcomes, has been killed after its forecast of the Germany vs Portugal on June 16 match proved to be incorrect.
Shaheen the Camel had predicted that in the Germany vs Portugal match, Portugal would be the winner. But yesterday’s outcome shows that former champions Germany thrashed Portugal 4-0 in a one-sided game.
So while Google dedicates its Doodle today to the late Paul the Octopus, the sea creature who successfully predicted match winners during the FIFA World Cup 2010, it seems Shaheen the Camel has been pout to sleep by the Arabs.
