We now proceed with a prognosticating pachyderm picking the outcome of a soccer match by taking two shots, this one at former German national goalkeeper Sepp Maier in Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, the other at Portugal's net. Nelly's score on Portugal portended a victory for Germany. Take it to the bank and stash your winnings in a trunk.
