A GROUP of ‘mystical meerkats’ have predicted that England’s lionesses will win their first European Championship tonight in the final against Germany.
The meerkats at Drusillas Zoo Park, near Alfriston, quickly jumped into a bucket of food bearing an England flag, predicting a win for the England women’s team at Wembley Stadium tonight.
Animal keeper Jacinta Dawe placed the buckets in front of the meerkats, one with the English and one with the German flag.
A whistle sounded and the meerkats pounced on the English bucket – so much so that it tipped over.
The Meerkats have yet to mispredict a game, predicting the Lionesses would win against Spain in their game at the Amex Stadium last week and against Sweden in Tuesday’s semifinals.
The mob also used their mystical powers to predict some of the matches at last year’s European Men’s Championship.
Jacinta said: “Our team was so impressed with England’s performances and team spirit so it was great to get behind the team and show our support.
“While we wish both teams the best of luck, it would be incredible if the Lionesses won like the Meerkats predicted.
“The mystical mob seem to love resurrecting their psychic powers and now they’re happy when they see me arriving with the buckets and flags.
“The mob matriarch, Tamu, is always first to the buckets and lets everyone know what to do, and even our baby joins in which is so nice to see.”
Tonight’s final is likely to draw one of the biggest TV viewerships of the year after England’s 4-0 win over Sweden was watched by an average of 7.9 million viewers.
The most-watched event or program of the year so far is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert, which was watched by 13.1 million viewers.
The Euro 2022 final will be broadcast live on BBC One at 15:50 with kick-off at 17:00.
