Six year old ‘Harley forecasts opening weekend’s results

A six year old football expert has forecast the results for the opening weekend of UEFA Euro 2016 in France.

‘Statto’ Harley has learned to identify every Premier League player by their shirt number. He was filmed by his Dad reeling off a host of top-flight stars, as well as recalling the shirt numbers of lesser known players.

The Tottenham Hotspur fan memorised the details after studying cards bought by his father Dean Hughes and spends hours poring over the facts by reading magazines and watching TV.

Harley became 5 lives ‘Paul the Octopus’ and drew upon his deep football knowledge to predict who will be victorious in this weekend’s key fixtures.
