Citta the resident oracle elephant of Krakow, Poland is about to make another prediction. Today she is going to pick the winner of the Euro 2012 soccer match, between Poland and Russia. And without any doubt Citta grabs the melon representing Poland. Her first forecast of the European Championships was wrong though. For the opening match between Poland and Greece she chose again, Poland, but that game ended in a draw. And now she is seeking redemption, says zoo spokesman Jerzy Pirog. SOUNDBITE: Zoo Veterinary, Jerzy Pirog, saying (English) "Well the first time it wasn't correct, we will see what's going to take place in the next game." Russia crushed their previous opponent Greece, winning four - one. So, it's likley to be a tough game for the Poles but Citta has full faith. Elly Park, Reuters.
