Euro 2020: England will beat Ukraine tonight according to Beatrice the cat from the RSPCA centre at Leybourne

Football fans can sit down in front of tonight's England game in full confidence.

The result has been predicted as an England victory over Ukraine by Beatrice, a cat waiting for a new home at the RSPCA centre in Leybourne near West Malling.

Beatrice predicts an England victory

The centre has been putting forward predictions from its psychic pets ahead of each game in the championship.

Already, a Collie-crossbreed named Gem correctly predicted an England win over World Cup enemies Croatia and last Tuesday a group of baby mice stepped up and prophesied that England would beat Germany.

The only one to get it wrong so far is Fred the ferret who's lack of faith in the national side saw him predict a win for Scotland in the group stages.

Kent's 'psychic' animals join the likes of a mystic octopus, elephant, panda and kangaroo as some of the world's foreseeing powers.

Paul the octopus hit headlines in 2010 with his eerily accurate predictions during the World Cup in South Africa.

Throughout the tournament he achieved an 85% success rate and even prompted an Argentine chef to post an octopus recipe when he correctly predicted the Germans to knock them out.

However, Paul wasn't a match for Nelly the elephant whose accuracy and longevity trumped the eight-tentacled sea creature.

During the 2006 Women's World Cup, 2008 European Championships and 2010 World Cup she correctly kicked a giant inflatable ball into nets marked with a country 30 out of 33 times.

During Euro 2012 Kent's very own Mystic Mog Leon finished the tournament with a 90% success rate.

The Canterbury Tonkinese cat correctly backed Spain to win the final and earned his owner £120 over the course of the tournament as he backed his feline's guesses with a £5 bet.

Tonight's crucial quarter-final game kicks off in Rome at 8pm.
