The Nostradamus Eleven
Nostradamus (pictured above) is probably most famous for his amazing prophecy which predicted the Second World War, to be instigated by an evil, shady character called Hister (our "Hitler").
What is less known is his prediction that an England football team would win the World Cup. Incredibly, the old goat kept a notebook in which he wrote down the names of all the players in the 1966 England World Cup Final team, other characters involved in the competition and even drew remarkable sketches which, thanks to modern computer technology, have recently been transformed into monochrome and even colour photographs!
So, ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, I am pleased to present to you...
ALF RIMSEY'S GOLDEN WONDERS
Head Coach: Alf Rimsey
Nostradamus had such incredible powers he even foresaw that the cup itself would be stolen and then thankfully found by a remarkable animal...
Dog, Biggles, with owner and World Cup
And who could forget the mascot of that great tournament?
