The world's fascination with animals predicting sporting events has become commonplace in the meme obsessed world of today. Meet Yalu, a 15,000 lb. Asian elephant who currently resides at the Jinan Zoo in the Shandong province of China

Yalu has been predicting every World Cup match at the FIFA 2014 Tournament in Brazil and appears to have found another winner. Early Wednesday morning, Yalu choose defending World Cup Champions Spain, to beat Chile in their vital clash on Wednesday afternoon. 

According to Confucius, "The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence." La Furia Roja reached that potential at the 2010 World Cup when they hoisted the Cupo del Mundo trophy. This year however, their will to win has waivered as they lost 5-1 in their opening match against Netherlands. 

Spanish midfielder and star, Andres Iniesta knows the defending champions must dig deep and focus for their fight with Chile on Wednesday. "Chile are a difficult ream because we'll have to defend and we'll have to fight one against one." Iniesta scored the game winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final to crown his country the champions. 

If Spain can get past Chile, there will be light at the end of the tunnel, as they have a relatively easy final round match up against Australia on June 23rd. Once they get out of the second round, all eyes will be on the Spaniards as they seek to repeat as champions. It won't be easy for in order to succeed this year, Spain will need more than just the confidence of Yalu the elephant.
