MYSTIC meerkats at a Sussex zoo predicted England’s overwhelming victory over Sweden to secure their place at the Women’s Euros.
The Lionesses overtook one of the favorites to win the tournament, beating them 4-0 and giving England their first major final since 2009.
Hours before the game, two buckets were presented to a bunch of meerkats at Drusillas Park, near Alfriston; one with an English flag and one with the Swedish flag.
Almost all the meerkats quickly inspected the England bucket and ‘predicted’ that the lionesses would triumph at Bramall Lane in Sheffield.

More than 28,000 people packed the stadium to watch last night’s game in which substitute Alessia Russo scored with a heel kick in the 68th minute.
At various points in the game, chants of “football is coming home” echoed across the floor.
The Lionesses will now meet either Germany or France in the final at Wembley on Sunday, depending on the result of another semi-final tonight in Milton Keynes.
