Nwela our football predicting serval cat is hoping her luck will turn as the World Cup enters another day.

She hasn’t had the best of luck yet but hopefully things can improve for the six-year-old from Banham Zoo.

Group F and G will be playing today with the crafty Swedes taking on South Korea and the fancied Belgians in action against Panama.

And there’s the little matter of England’s first match in this World Cup – against Tunisia.

Tomorrow the pick of the fixtures has to be the home side Russia taking on Egypt.

Nwela may not have got the majority of her predictions right but she was able to call the Spain, Portugal game, which saw Cristiano Ronaldo get a hat-trick scoring a late free-kick.

Watch the video to find out what Nwela thinks today’s results will be.

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