With the World Cup kicking off today everyone will be trying to predict who is going to win each game and come out as the top of their group.

This paper has teamed up Banham Zoo to bring a prediction for every game of the World Cup from one very special furry friend.

Nwela, a six-year-old serval cat, and head of training and presentation Andy Hallsworth will predict each game before kick off - putting Nwela’s football knowledge to the test.

The first game of the tournament are hosts Russia against Saudi Arabia.

Placing each flag on a feeding post and putting food at the bottom, whichever post Nwela eats from is the team Nwela thinks will come out on top.

Watch the video to find out what Nwela thinks the result will be.

This website will be bringing a new video each day with Nwela’s and other animals predictions.
