A 'psychic' parrot has predicted the outcome for tomorrow's England vs Ukraine match.
Eva, a blue and gold macaw has previously correctly predicted that England would win their match against Germany and that Switzerland would knock out France - so she's got good form for picking a winner.
The seven-year-old parrot has now been asked to predict the winner as England takes on Ukraine tomorrow (3 July) in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals.
Staff at Wicksteed Park in Kettering set up a 'psychometric' test, which saw Eva choosing from bowls of bird seed in front of the teams' respective flags ahead of their games.
After being asked to go and pick a bowl to eat from, Eva has correctly chosen the flags of teams which later won.
And Eva's prediction for England vs Ukraine? Let's just say a little birdie told me, 'it's coming home'.
Yep, if Eva's previous form is anything to go by, tomorrow's game looks to be in the bag.
Sophia Perkins, who looks after the birds in the Wicksteed Park aviary, said: "Eva is known to be a very intelligent bird but we never realised she had a talent for predicting football results.
"She had originally been rescued after being found being kept in someone's attic a few years ago but has made quite an impression since she came here in 2019.
"She seems to have a sixth sense when she seemed to know who was due to feed her that day and I'm guessing these result predictions are just typical of that.
"At first we just put the flags next to her food as a visual stimulation for her before each game and after a while we just realised she was going to eat at the right bowl for the victorious team.
"She's not let us down once - we will just have to try and teach her to say, 'Come on England', when the game starts.
"She might even do a better job predicting what will happen than some of the TV pundits."
Is that shots fired at Graeme Souness?
Eva isn't the first 'psychic' animal we've seen get caught up in football fever.
During the World Cup in 2018, Rabio the octopus hit headlines after correctly picking the results of Japan's first three matches.
