Spain to beat England in the final?

Post by Lisbon67 » Thu Jun 22, 2006 10:49 am

There's a supposed prophecy by Nostradamus doing the rounds. From The Guardian's Fiver

"In the sixth month of 2006 the King of Spain will cross the Pyrenees with his troops. The legions of Beelzebub will battle him in central Europe but the evil ones will suffer doom and destruction. The Holy Grail will then come, like the King, to Spain" - Spanish rag '20 Minutos' reckons soothsaying shrewdy Nostradamus must be predicting glory for Luis Aragones's team in Germany. But won't the final be in the seventh month?"

Clearly the 'legions of Beelzebub' is a reference to Beckham & Co. As for the final being in July, it won't be if you use the Julian calendar which was in use when Nostradumus was writing. There's an eleven days difference so the final will actually be June 28th
