Mystic meerkats have finally given the Euro final predictions a source of authority – and they say it’s coming home.

The fortune telling animals in East Sussex have said England are set to win the tournament, but only just.

They have a perfect prediction record for the Men’s 2021 tournament, meaning hopefuls are looking to them to place faith in the English side.

At ‘full time’ there were more meerkats surrounding the England bucket, showing the mystic mob believe that England will be the ones lifting the trophy on Sunday night.

This is despite Spain being the bookies favourite to take home the trophy.

These furry friends became an internet sensation in the Men’s 2021 tournament with a perfect prediction record.

The special method involves two buckets of nuts, peas, and sweetcorn (favourite meerkat snacks), each with a team’s flag on.

The buckets are placed down before the meerkats are released and left to choose which bucket they would prefer to eat from.

The bucket surrounded by the most meerkats is then declared the predicted winner.

Zoo Section Leader Jacinta Dawe said: ‘The mystic meerkats have done an amazing job with their forecasts so far this Euros and we’re keeping everything crossed that their final prediction comes true.

‘Spain are the favourites, so I don’t think it’s surprising that the meerkats showed a lot of interest in their bucket too.

‘We believe this means it could be another match when we’re on the edge of our seats for 90 minutes!

‘But in the end, more meerkats settled on the England bucket, showing that they are sure it will be a victory for Gareth Southgate’s squad when the final whistle blows.’
