They’ve been in training for weeks at one Midlands Adventure Park, and now Gazza and Zola are going head to head to predict next week’s winner of the England versus Italy match on June 14th.
Who can forget Germany’s ‘Paul the Octopus’ predicting the 2010 World Cup Results? Now Hatton Adventure World’s very own guinea pigs are preparing to do battle on the pitch to give their own winning forecast.
Richard Craddock, Adventure World manager at Hatton, near Warwick, is looking forward to his mystic pigs bringing luck to the home team.
“It’s been a lot of fun preparing the guinea pigs for the world’s greatest football tournament, and we hope they will provide us with the winner,” said Mr Craddock.
“Who knows, they could become a lucky mascot for whichever team wins; we just hope that it’s England,” he added.
The 23 guinea pigs (a referee in black and 22 players wearing either England or Italy strips) were selected from among 300 in Hatton Adventure World’s own guinea pig village. They will be playing on a specially adapted football pitch, chasing a football made from their favourite food and cheered on by young fans in England and Italian shirts with their faces painted in national colours.
