The fortune-telling cucumber's owner said he happened to have stumbled upon the clairvoyant vegetable lying on the street of Helsinki. He took it home and started making predictions by spinning the cucumber between the names of the two competing teams before every match.
By the proud owner's admission, the cucumber effectively predicts the winner by pointing at a one of the teams. If the cucumber ends up pointing at neither team, the result will be a draw.
Photos of the cucumber's new prophecies are posted on its Facebook page ahead of the day's matches.
"I foresaw two Ireland goals, but my interpreters didn't understand that one was going into their own net," referring to an own goal by the Irish defender Ciaran Clark in the second-half, which lead to a 1-1 draw.
The cucumber's success as an oracle has drawn comparisons with the soothsaying mollusk Paul the Octopus, whose claim to fame was correctly "guessing" the outcome of most of Germany's matches during Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010.
Whereas Paul the Octopus passed away at the ripe old age of two-and-a-half, the fortune telling cucumber may start to rot before the end of the Euro 2016.
