If Nostradamus has his way, Spain is all set to lift this year's football World Cup.
Spanish journalists have managed to find a prediction made by Nostradamus in 1555 about the outcome of the 2006 World Cup, Russian magazine 'Pravda' said in a report.
The 16th century author of prophecies wrote that "the Spanish king and his army will cross over the Pyrenees at the end of the sixth month of the sixth year. The king will win the battle with Beelzebub on the fields of Central Europe, and the army will return the Holy Grail to Spain".
Interpreting the prediction, the journalists said that "The Spanish king and his army" stands for the national Spanish football team and its coach Luis Aragones.
"The fields of Central Europe" stand for the football stadiums in Germany and "the Holy Grail" is the World Cup, the report said.
