With Joachim Loewe’s team a firm favorite from the start, many World Cup aficionados could have predicted that Germany would win, however Magician Dynamo really outdid the rest with his tournament predictions.
Two weeks ago on Sky Sports News, the English illusionist passed a sealed envelope to presenter Rob Wotton. On the Monday morning show, he went back to the studio to expose its magical contents.
The safeguarded package contained an audio recording, which commences by accurately prophesying that either Neymar, Messi or Ronaldo would exit the tournament early with a back injury.
It carries on to predict that a Latin American side would face a European one in the final. When Wotton remarks that he could have guessed this on his World Cup wall-chart, Dynamo eggs them on to listen to his revelation that the most junior player on the pitch Mario Goetze would score the winner in the 113th minute.
He then concluded the recording with "Auf Wiedersehen," alluding to the fact that he knew the winning nation would be Germany.
There are a fair few conceivable reasons for the gimmick - he swapped the envelopes; the CD player isn't actually playing the CD from the envelope, this said it is unquestionably well carried out.
Some may wonder why Dynamo didn’t place any bets on this year’s World Cup…
