Psychic penguins have become unlikely predictors of Women’s World Cup winners. Nestled in the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, a colony of Gentoo penguins possesses an extraordinary ability to forecast the outcome of human soccer matches, despite their limited comprehension of the sport and their environment.

After successfully predicting the Matildas’ victory against the Republic of Ireland last week, the Gentoo penguins at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium are once again harnessing their psychic abilities to foresee another peng-win, this time against Nigeria in their second Group Stage match tonight.
