The late "octopus oracle" Paul shot to fame when he predicted Germany to win the 2010 World Cup.

The German sea lion has competition from France's Watson.

Watson picked his own country as the clear winner of Friday evening's match.

But will any of these animals reach the notoriety of Octopus Paul?
