Ermitazh Cat Predicts Switzerland will Defeat Sweden at World Cup

________________________

Akhill (Achilles), a white-furred tomcat reputed to have psychic powers, predicted that the Swiss team will win a match against Sweden in the FIFA World Cup’s Round of 16 in St Petersburg on Tuesday. The oracle cat confidently approached a food bowl with the Swiss flag at the State Ermitazh Museum in St Petersburg and ate the food. Last time, the blue-eyed cat, who made flawless predictions for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, was wrong when forecasting the outcome of a match between Nigeria and Argentina, and now the feline has to confirm his psychic powers. The cat was correct in choosing the Russian national team as the winner over Saudi Arabia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup’s opener in Moscow on 14 June and also the outcomes of the matches at the stadium in St Petersburg. Achilles also predicted the victory of Iran’s team over Morocco on 15 June, Russia’s victory over Egypt on 19 June and Brazil’s victory over Costa Rica on 22 June. During a match between Argentina and Nigeria, Akhill chose Nigeria, but Argentina won 2-1.

Akhill became the animal oracle because he displayed analytical capabilities and unique behaviour. Moreover, he’s deaf as many white cats are, yet this impairment doesn’t sidetrack the feline and lets him better concentrate on his predictions. The cat was right about the outcomes of three out of four 2017 Confederation Cup matches played in St Petersburg, including the opening and final matches. His “performance” during the World Cup is a joint project on bolstering tourism to St Petersburg and the Ermitazh Museum. Akhill will predict the results of the World Cup’s semifinal and a match for the third place scheduled in St Petersburg on 10 July and 14 July.

В Сочи хорошо! Отъедаюсь по-кавказски… хинкали на ужин! Скажу Михалычу, чтобы по субботам всегда меня так кормил. 😉

It’s great in Sochi! I’m gorging on Caucasian food tonight… Georgian khinkali (recipe) for dinner! Therefore, tell Mikhalych I ate my fill this Saturday. 😉

The workers’ cat is on holiday for a well-deserved break after the road-bridge is done. Khinkali are like dumplings… you hold them by the knob and bite into them. Georgians can do it without getting a drop on their shirt… can you? Don’t eat the “knob”… you line ’em up on your plate to show how many you’ve eaten.

Here’s a little something on xiaolongbao (recipe), a similar Chinese edible…
