Linton Zoo

Linton Zoo's African lion Safina makes her prediction for tonight's England v Uruguay game.


Safina, one of the African lions at Linton Zoo, has made a prediction on the result for England’s football match against Uruguay tonight... and it seems Roy Hodgson’s men are going to win!

Safina and her mate Zuri were both hand reared at the popular zoo, and are big football fans having grown up in the house watching it on TV.

Let’s hope Safina got it right. Come on England!
