Score is bad news for psychic llama
England's draw against France spelt bad news for Nicholas the psychic llama who predicted that Roy Hodgson's men would triumph in their opening Euro 2012 match.
He forecast that the Three Lions would clinch wins against France and Sweden, and lose to Ukraine in the group stages before eventually going on to win the final.
But Monday night's 1-1 draw cast doubt over the psychic abilities of Nicholas who made his predictions by knocking off balls placed on top of sticks to indicate who he thought would win.
His keepers at Ashdown Llama Park in East Sussex believed he could rival Paul the octopus who sprang to fame by forecasting the outcome of all seven Germany matches in the last World Cup.
Nicholas started a run of correct predictions by guessing that Chelsea would beat Liverpool in the FA Cup Final at Wembley last month.
He then continued by rightly guessing that Frank Lampard and his Chelsea team-mates would win the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
