Watch Sunderland's psychic pony predict the outcome of England's Euro match against Scotland following a win against Croatia
Sunderland’s psychic pony, Yellow is back with another prediction ahead of England’s second Euro match against Scotland on Friday.
England secured a win on Sunday, June 13 against Croatia in their first Euro 2020 match as psychic pony Yellow incorrectly predicted that the match would finish with a draw.
Supporters across Sunderland were out on Sunday celebrating the win against the nation responsible for kicking them out of the World Cup semi-finals in 2018.
Yellow is feeling confident about the next prediction against Scotland which he expects to be a win for the Three Lions.
The psychic pony, who lives at Penshaw Equestrian Centre was released from his stable and asked to choose between one of three bowls of horse feed.
Hidden from his view on the opposite side of the bowls were labels with the words "win", "lose" or “draw”.
The Euro 2020 competition has had to take place a year later than originally planned, but it’s still set to be a hotly-fought contest with 24 teams playing across 51 matches in 11 cities around Europe between June 11 and July 11.
Unfortunately, Yellow’s last prediction was incorrect with a draw on the cards but horse rider Georgia Shaw is feeling hopeful.
Georgia, 23, who learnt to ride a horse with Yellow said: “He’s always the first to know when dinner is coming and he knows where the treats are, so I have no doubt that his predictions are correct.
"He was right last time about the Sunderland final so I’m sure he’ll be right again!”
Yellow, who is 20-years-old is merely the latest in a distinguished line of animal pundits to be consulted by the Echo before important football games.
The late Big Bob, also known as the Psychic Sunderland Pig, correctly predicted the outcome of four out of England’s first five 2018 World Cup matches before eventually telling porkies by wrongly forecasting a Three Loins semi-final win over Croatia.
Hopes are high for the Scotland game on Friday, June 18 after Gareth Southgate’s side managed to finish fourth at the 2018 World Cup, their last major tournament.
