Belgium vs Algeria Google Doodle

You don't need to gaze into the crystal ball anymore. With the FIFA World Cup Belgium vs Algeria group H clash coming up on Tuesday, Google Doodle has just made your job easier to predict a winner! Remember Paul the Octopus? Well, he may be physically dead, but his memories have been revived by Google by its latest doodle.

Google has celebrated several moments of the Brazil World Cup by producing a doodle almost every day since the World Cup started on June 12. Ask Paul, the Octopus who will win the Belgium vs Algeria clash.

Tuesday's World Cup 2014 doodle depicts Paul sitting in the clouds with a halo on his head, trying to predict the winner of the Belgium vs Algeria match. The green and gold ball sits pretty in front of him, and Google is written in two parts on either sides of the cephalopod mollusk. A visibly confused Paul is seen scratching his head trying to predict the winner.

The subject of Tuesday's World Cup 2014 doodle was an animal celebrity during World Cup in South Africa in 2010. Paul the Octopus made several divinations with an aquarium keeper presenting him with food kept in two boxes marked with the flags of the respective teams playing on that particular day. The box from which he chose the food represented the winning team.

Paul the octopus has been a trend-setter of sorts. Since then there has been Nelly, the elephant; Roo, the dog and more recently, Shaheen, the Camel.

Believe it or not, Google Doodle has surely injected an interesting twist to the Brazil World Cup. So pick you winner and check out with Paul, the Octopus.
