Mumbai: With the FIFA World Cup on in full swing, search engine giants Google have come up with unique doodles dedicated to every match day. While we talk about the FIFA World cup, it would be blasphamous to not mention the legendary Paul Octopus.

Paul, the octopus shot to international fame, when he began to accurately predict match results during Euro 2008 and World Cup of 2010. He unfortunately died that very year, but predictions then became synonymous with Paul the Octopus.

Today's Google Doodle is dedicated to the first match of the evening between Belgium and Algeria. The doodle shows the angel Paul, trying to predict a winner between the two teams while the name 'Google' rests on either side of the octopus.

Belgium take on Algeria in the first game of Group H at 9.30 PM IST at the Estadio Mineirao, Belo Horizonte.
