Cat Achilles first found fame a few years ago during the 2017 Confederations Cup, where he correctly guessed the results of four matches. He then went on to test his predictive skills during the 2018 FIFA World Cup and again accurately predicted the results of four games. After his triumph, Achilles was named the best oracle of the tournament.

The blue-eyed, white-furred cat from St. Petersburg's Hermitage Museum in Russia has been deaf since birth, and when he's not predicting matches, he's busy with his social work. As a therapy Cat Achilles regularly visits hospices, orphanages and retirement homes with his proud owner Anna Kondratyeva. Anna describes Achilles as a calm and easy-going feline who is quite happy to visit different places.

While he does have several prediction successes under his collar, some of his later guesses did fall short of the mark. However, despite a couple of dips in his guessing game record, Achilles has been invited by the vice governor of St. Petersburg, Boris Piotrovsky, to predict the winner of this year's competition when St. Petersburg host three group stage matches and a quarter-final.

If you are wondering how Achilles makes his predictions, it all comes down to food. He is offered two bowls of cat food. Each bowl represents one of the countries participating in the matches and displays the country's flag. The bowl that Achilles chooses confirms his prediction.

The process of predicting the results of the “Euro 2020” matches will be simple and funny, as two bowls will be placed in them with the same food in front of Achilles, and in each of them the flag of one of the two countries participating in the match, and the bowl of the national team from which Achilles begins to eat is the candidate to win the confrontation.

Euro 2020 to be held between June 11 and July 11 in 10 cities in 11 European countries, after the Spanish cities of Bilbao and Dublin, Ireland, for their lack of commitment to host fans in their stadiums, were withdrawn in light of the spread of “Covid 19”.
