The answer to the problem of predicting the 2010 World Cup winners!

When you watch the best players around the world playing football you’re often left wondering just how did they do that? The 2010 World Cup in South Africa is sure to see some amazing skill on show, and the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be able to stop themselves from doing a little bit of showboating, leaving us mere mortals watching at home and down the pub speechless. This is also likely to be the reaction when you watch the Sure Men Last Eight Sweepstake machine in action, pure and utter amazement.

This is one of those viral videos where you wonder how they did it. And when you find out that it was all done in one take you might not believe your eyes, but it’s true. This video, no doubt inspired by previous attempts, takes this type of operation to a whole new level. It starts normally enough with a ball being thrown through a basketball hoop, which in turn causes the England flag to raise up (something that we’ll be seeing on houses and in cars up and down the country in their thousands) and triggers the ball to get moving. Then just sit back and watch as one event triggers another and another and another…

The final action sees a mechanical leg kicking a football and the result being processed. This is the whole point of the sweepstake machine, predicting the results from the quarter finals of the 2010 World Cup onwards (an impossible task even for football pundits in the know). Incidentally Brazil are picked as the winners in the video, but there is a much easier way to get your sweepstake team for South Africa simply by picking up a can of Sure Men Sport. For more information about the competition head to, but first watch this incredible video, and look out for the Euro Tunnel near the start.
