This psychic octopus correctly predicts Japan’s World Cup results

Belgium's Marouane Fellaini center celebrates with teammates after scoring his second side goal during the round of 16 match between Belgium and Japan

Like some sort of subsurface albatross, the unfortunate death of Rabiot did not bode well for Japan, who were booted from the World Cup shortly after he was condemned forever to fiery torment.

Meanwhile, the octopus credited with predicting the outcome of Japan's previous three matches had already met its demise ― sold as seafood, outlets reported.

Rabiot was placed in a pool with three baskets of food, one representing a loss, another representing a win, and the final representing a draw.

Can Hong Kong's World Cup animal oracle Datou the dog predict the victor of Russian Federation 2018? Whichever it swam toward first became its prediction.

"I'm glad all the forecasts turned out correct and Japan moved on to the knockout stage", Abe told the Mainichi Shimbun newspaper before Japan's loss to Belgium in the last 16.

Amazon to Acquire PillPack
CVS had prescription sales of $59.5 billion previous year , while Walgreens sold $57.8 billion worth of drugs in its fiscal 2017. PillPack is an online pharmacy which operates in all 50 U.S. states and offers pre-sorted dose packaging and home delivery.

The octopus proved to be a spineless Jimmy the Greek, correctly choosing Japan to defeat Colombia, tie with Senegal and lose to Poland.

The octopus' successor, Rabiot Junior, was also revealed to be not quite as psychic as many Japanese punters had hoped - predicting Japan to overcome the European giants.

The oracle octopus didn't get a chance to prognosticate Japan's elimination game against Belgium.

Fisherman Kimio Abe, 51, reportedly felt his business was more important than keeping the octopus alive - but said he was happy it had called the three group games correctly. PETA was not amused.

In 2010, Paul the octopus became an worldwide star after correctly predicting the results of all Germany's games in the 2010 World Cup, as well as the final - in which it backed Spain to win.
